Local Chicago Cubs fans packed Dick’s Sporting Goods today, anxious to grab some celebratory merchandise. Many stood in line immediately following Wednesday night’s World Series win.
In fact, there was an over two-and-a-half hour wait to get into the store when the doors opened early this morning. Some customers walked away empty-handed, as hats, pennants, t-shirts, and other World Series gear flew off shelves. Still it doesn’t seem to be keeping die-hard fans down.
If you are looking to pick up memorabilia yourself, retailers suggest checking back in throughout the day, as they’ll be continuously refilling they’re stock.
