Sports stores open early amid high demand for Lightning Stanley Cup merch


TAMPA BAY, Fla (WFLA) – Dicks Sporting Goods and other retailers across Tampa Bay are opening early Tuesday morning due to the Lightning winning the Stanley Cup.

Stores from Brooksville to St. Pete, Tampa to Sarasota, are opening up at 7 a.m. to give fans a chance to commemorate the championship game. One family showed up to the store at Westshore Mall at 6 a.m. to make sure they got their hands on the championship gear.

8 On Your Side spoke with fans this morning as they purchased their new lightning gear.

“I cant believe they won it. It doesn’t even feel real. It’s a dream come true. I’ve been a lightning fan since I was born,” said avid Bolts fan Cera Luciani.

Fans are highly encouraged to get their gear via Dick Sporting Good’s contactless curbside pickup service. Championship gear is available online and customers can order for in-store or curbside pickup.
