At one point in time during the Olympics, these Team Canada Hoodies were sold out all across Canada. There were so in demand that they were being resold on eBay for over $200. Stock from all over Canada was actually pulled to be shipped to Vancouver since the HBC Olympic store had empty shelves. People would line up outside of Bay stores every morning to try and purchase daily stock.
That no longer is the case. HBC (The Bay/Zellers) have mass reproduced the famous Olympic gear we all saw on TV earlier this year and are now available at Winnipeg Bay and Zellers locations.
I purchased a couple hoodies for $50 each and they are amazing. Good luck with your hunt. I’m still looking for this jacket, let me know if you see any!
