GREEN BAY, Wis --The Packers Pro Shop opened Thursday morning to a line around the field.
Dozens of people jockeying for a position to get through the doors and see the new 21,500 square foot shop.
The Packers Organization says it wanted to create a unique shopping experience for fans. When you enter the shop a 16-foot replica of a game day helmet greets you. Packers memorabilia is scattered around the store including a restored 1957 Packers truck. The store is twice the size of the old Pro-Shop and offers fans lots of new merchandise.
"The Packers Pro Shop has always been truly one of a kind. There is nothing quite like it across the league and we think it's going to be even more so now," said Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy.
Packers Pro Shop regular hours are Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.;Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.;and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
