SEEKONK, Mass. (WPRI) — While Red Sox fans were celebrating the big win, many employees at Dick’s Sporting Goods were hard at work getting championship merchandise ready.
To commemorate the win, Dick’s will have extended hours so fans can deck themselves out.
Some fans are lucky enough to already have their hands on the new gear.
Eyewitness News Reporter Alexandra Leslie is at the store location in Seekonk, which opened up following the championship win Sunday night, and stayed open until 1:30 Monday morning.
The store opened again at 6 a.m. Monday.
There are all sorts of new gear from T-shirts and sweatshirts to hats and other memorabilia, some of which was printed at Mirror Image in Pawtucket.
Some faithful fans got to Dick’s right away, while others waited for the celebrations to end.
“We waited, they won, they did the MVP, and then we were like, let’s go! We wanted hats and sweatshirts and T-shirts, you know just a bunch of gear, and just to kind of share the comradery with the other fans, and we were like, ‘Do you think people will be there?’ And they were, it was fun,” one fan said.
