Dick’s Sporting Goods and Academy Sports + Outdoors plan to extend hours of some of their stores following Monday night’s national championship college football game.
The retailers’ stores in Louisiana planned to reopen following LSU’s 42-25 victory over Clemson inside the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The finale of the college football season matched a pair of previously undefeated teams.
Some Dick’s stores will open early on Tuesday morning with championship gear.
How long the stores stay open will depend on customer demand and the discretion of the stores’ managers, according to Dick’s. Some stores will stay open until at least midnight, if not longer.
According to Academy, doors will reopen right after the fourth quarter ends and won’t close until the last customer is served or the championship products sell out.
