EMORY, Va. – The Emory & Henry College Department of Athletics is pleased to announce that beginning Monday, August 22 fans will have an exclusive opportunity to purchase authentic E&H apparel through an online store. The College is partnering with Team Sports Outfitters in Bristol to make this a possibility.
"We are excited to have new products for our students, parents, alumni and fans and we are especially pleased to offer more team-branded items," commented Director of Athletics Myra Sims. "Each of these products are different from anything that is currently available. We have selected a variety of pieces so that everyone can find something that will make them proud to wear the blue and gold."
The store will be open from Monday, August 22 through Friday, September 30. Various types of items will be available including polo shirts, hoodies, vests, jackets and pants. Each of these items can be branded with any sport name or simply, "Athletics."
While the store will close at the end of September, there will be another opportunity later in the academic year to make future purchases. E&H-branded gear remains available year-round from the College bookstore, The Emory Mercantile.
"This is a great opportunity for Emory & Henry to strengthen its athletic brand," added Sims. "We are equally pleased that a portion of the sales will benefit our athletics programs directly."
