SUNY Poly CNSE Launches ‘NanoBytes’ Online Retail Store

New site offers high-tech brand of clothing items, academic supplies for students, and smart gift options to meet growing demand

 Albany, NY – SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (SUNY Poly CNSE) announced today that it is launching an online retail store to provide 24-hour access to purchase SUNY Poly CNSE-themed clothing, student supplies, and accessories in order to help meet the significant demand that has increased since the ‘NanoBytes’ store opened at SUNY Poly CNSE’s $20 billion Albany NanoTech Complex in September 2013.

SUNY Poly CNSE’s online NanoBytes website will offer many of the items found in the “brick and mortar” store, enabling the purchase of everything from t-shirts, sweatshirts, and performance shirts to sweatpants, hats, ties, and school supplies, including textbooks. Each item is emblazoned with the widely recognized SUNY Poly CNSE logo, which has come to symbolize powerful high-tech growth, unsurpassed nanosciences-related research and development capabilities, and exciting academic and career opportunities.
