Stores ready to start selling official championship gear if Bama wins
BIRMINGHAM - AL —
Sporting goods stores are preparing to re-open late Monday night if the Crimson Tide secures another victory.
Boxes of championship hats and T-shirts are waiting in sealed boxes at select Dick's and all Academy Sports and Outdoors stores in Alabama.
The stores will welcome Tide fans in after the Monday night BCS National Championship until the gear is sold out, so they can be among the first to score championship attire.
If Alabama wins, Dick's will reopen the stores on Highway 280 South in Birmingham, Creekside Avenue in Hoover, and Oxford Exchange. The same stores will also have an earlier start on Tuesday at 6 a.m..
