Packers fans gear up after NFC Championship win


By Bonnie Shelton

WAUSAU (WAOW)--Stores across the area got their first shipments of NFC championship gear out on the floor Monday. Fans said they couldn't wait to rep the latest green and gold apparel.

"We came in at nine o'clock to do inventory we weren't planning on opening until ten o'clock but we had so many people at nine o'clock that we had to open the doors," said Amy Jaglinski, employee at Packerland Plus in the Wausau Center.

Employees said sales were booming even before the Packs big win, but now everyone's excited to purchase NFC Championship tees and Super Bowl Jerseys.

Fans are even signing up on waiting lists to purchase merchandise.

Phones were also ringing off the hook at Shopko. A new shipment of NFC Championship shirts arrived Monday afternoon. Employees immediately started preparing them for the racks.

"The games definitely dictate a good traffic flow," said Shopko Customer Service Manager Derek Hanamann.

 Packerland Plus employees said green and gold fever won't be letting up anytime soon. Championship hats arrive on Tuesday and shipments of replica Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl jerseys should arrive Wednesday.

So Packers fans, hurry up and gear up because this merchandise is flying off the racks.
