Getting ready to go to college is stressful enough, so it is expected that you will forget small things that are kind of important to have. Thankfully, there are still some great stores to get the must-have items you forgot from home.
Shower caddy: Bed, Bath and Beyond across from the NRV mall in Christiansburg has everything you need for any shower items you forgot. Word to the wise: get there early — high-demand items will go fast because students from Tech and Radford both flock to this location.
Ethernet cord: This is important for on campus living because you will need one to be able to use residence hall internet in most dorms. The University Bookstore on campus sells these, but Best Buy in Christiansburg also has cords plus any other electronics you forgot, such as a power strip.
First-aid kit: Blacksburg has several pharmacies and grocery stores to purchase this essential item. There is actually a CVS, Rite Aid and Kroger all on University City Boulevard for your convenience.
School supplies: The bookstore on campus can help out for most items, but Staples in Christiansburg is also stocked with a large variety at low prices. Pharmacies and grocery stores also tend to sell school supplies, as well as the Dollar Tree on South Main Street.
