Shuckers Merchandise Flying off the Shelves
“We haven’t even reached the 24-hour mark and our sales have been spectacular,” said Shuckers General Manager Buck Rogers. “People love the logo and are so excited to be among the first to get a Shuckers cap or t-shirt. They’re definitely buying for themselves but they’re also starting their Christmas shopping. It’s awesome to see how excited people are.”
The Shuckers Team Store is located at the Biloxi Coast Transit Authority Building at 820 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Suite B. The store is open Monday-Friday from 10am-6pm and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Merchandise is also available at the team’s online store, biloxishuckers.com.
Merchandise went on sale immediately following last night’s ceremony unveiling the team identity and sales exceeded expectations on opening night. Fans were waiting in line this morning to start shopping, and Internet sales have come from states all around the country and have even included international orders.
“We felt confident that the logos and colors were going to have a great local and regional flavor, and that’s certainly proving to be the case so far,” said Rogers. “Our challenge will be to keep enough merchandise in stock because people absolutely love their Shuckers.”
