Team Spirit

all year round. The opportunity to sell collegiate apparel, accessories and gifts reaches way beyond that of a campus bookstore. Retailers all over America are reaping the bene ts of carrying items to appeal to their customers’ team spirit.
In Austin, for example, boutique owners who carry not only University of Texas-branded items, but dresses, tops, shorts and accessories in that classic burnt orange hue can count on moving those items throughout the year. In Arkansas, the same can be said for a home accent store with Razorback-red pillows, serving trays, coasters and more. People take pride in their teams and enjoy showing their support beyond just a car bumper sticker or keychain.
Exploring apparel, accessories, home and gift lines with this in mind can open your retail store to so much new potential. Customers may frequent your shop more often looking for an out t for the next alumni event or the perfect birthday gift for that sorority sister they haven’t seen in a while. You can count on sales from this merchandise no matter the season and mix and match product categories to create on-trend displays throughout the year.
So, if it looks like team spirit, that’s because it’s out in full force. Create new revenue streams and gain new customers while you root for your favorite teams. You’ll  nd sports- inspired products and brands all across Dallas Market Center but to get you started, check out these lines
