Stores see Badgers apparel sales skyrocket

WAUSAU ( WAOW) - All the Badgers mania has fans rushing to buy some new gear to support the team.

Packerland Plus in the Wausau Mall has seen sales jump. Workers at the store tell us whenever the team wins, people pile in to buy their favorite gear.

"We noticed that when the Badgers won the Sweet 16 that it did pick up the last few days,” said Tom Ketchum, a sales associate at Packerland Plus. “Now with them being in the Elite Eight on Saturday, hopefully that will generate some more Badgers apparel being sold."

Workers say they don't plan on getting any new gear into the store, but if the Badgers make it to the Final Four, that could change.
