Alabama Crimson Tide National Championship t-shirts and hats are already on sale at some stores.
Academy Sports + Outdoors confirmed to News For Shoppers just moments ago that their stores throughout Alabama are open late tonight and have Alabama Crimson Tide National Championship t-shirts and hats in stock.
Academy stores will remain open until stock is depleted or crowds slow. They said stock would be replenished daily.
Walmart spokeswoman Debbie Wishon told NFS earlier today that printers were on standby near both Tuscaloosa and Notre Dame – and Walmart stores within 70 miles of the winning team will have 2013 National Championship t-shirts available on Tuesday. Hats will be available two days later. As for stores throughout the US, “All the remaining stores will receive the merchandise two days later and it will include tees and headwear” said Wishon.
Meier Raivich, Vice President, Communications and Corporate Branding for Fanatics, told us that “BCS Championship merchandise will be available on Fanatics.com and FansEdge.com” within minutes of the game’s end. He also said they had a special right now with free shipping on orders over $75.
Surprisingly, Sports Authority gave us a vague response when we asked about availability of National Championship gear, simply saying they would get back to us when they do have the merchandise available. Can’t win them all I guess.
