MADISON, Alabama - JULY 17, 2019 -- The Rocket City Trash Pandas have announced the relocation of its retail store inside Bridge Street Town Centre, beginning Monday, July 29. Previously located beside the Apple Store, the Trash Pandas Emporium will soon be relocated near the "Bridge," in the former location for Michael Kors, Suite 125, next to Moe's Southwest Grill.
In the wake of substantial growth and record-breaking merchandise sales, this re-location provides double the amount of square footage for Trash Pandas fans.
"The Trash Pandas Emporium has achieved more than $1.25 million in sales since opening at Bridge Street last November," said Trash Pandas CEO Ralph Nelson. "If we hear one constant comment, it has been that the store is always crowded. The new location should ease that problem in plenty of time for back-to-school shopping and the holiday season."
A day-long Grand Re-Opening Celebration will be held July 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will feature music, temporary Trash Panda tattoos for children, merchandise giveaways, and more. The first 300 people to attend the celebration will receive an official Rocket City Trash Pandas lanyard. A door prize of Trash Pandas merchandise will be awarded every two hours.
All official licensed Trash Pandas merchandise, including official replica jerseys, New Era on-field caps, t-shirts, outerwear, unique novelties, and much more will be available for purchase in the new location. Additionally, remaining Authentic Jersey Experience packages will be available for purchase at the discounted price of $199 on Grand Reopening day (in-store purchases only).
The Trash Pandas Authentic Jersey Experience offers fans the opportunity to purchase authentic inaugural season jerseys cut from the same cloth as team uniforms. This package includes a personalized jersey, a locker for the day in the Trash Pandas team locker room, the opportunity to take batting practice on the field, and a post-game meal for participants and two guests in the Stadium Club. The experience will be available for $199, in-store only, on July 29. After this, it will be available for $249, while supplies last, through the end of the year.
All official licensed merchandise is also available for purchase in the Trash Pandas' online store at trashpandasbaseball.com.
The Rocket City Trash Pandas is the Double-A Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels. Opening Day is set for April 15, 2020 at the Trash Pandas Stadium located at Town Madison
