Fans Shop BAMA Championship Merchandise
Alabama beating Clemson to become the 2016 National Football Champions has fans looking for championship gear to buy, and they won’t have to look far. Dozens of stores including websites and many local stores were open immediately following the game. Oxford Retailer Martin’s Family Clothing is selling hats, t-shirts and more. Martin’s Store Manager Donna Macon says the sales have been phenomenal. She says they opened after the game and their parking lot was full of Alabama fans. She adds that they re-opened this morning with new T-Shirts with the final score on them and people have been buying them non-stop. According to reports, those post-championship sales can translate to big business for retailers, even bumping up quarterly reports. Officials say the championship should provide a nice boost for sporting goods stores who sell a considerable amount of college football merchandise.
