The 4,400 square foot Bomber Store located on the main floor of the St. Vital Mall had its grand opening yesterday. This marks the second Bomber Store location, the first being at Canad Inns Stadium.
“We are thrilled to be opening another ‘Bomber Store’, expanding our reach to the faithful fans that support our football club,” said Lyle Bauer, president and CEO of the Blue Bombers. “This new location will be able to expand our reach to our fans, carry more merchandise and handle the volume that is necessary because of the high demand of our products.”
The new store is located right by the food court and like the Canad Inn Stadium location, 100 per cent of proceeds directly support the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
A free Blue Bombers gift will be given to the first 750 customers (while supplies last) beginning Thursday. Fans who spend a minimum of $75 will receive a complimentary Blue Bombers mug. And over the weekend, mascots Buzz and Boomer will join members of the Blue Lightning Dance Team between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
