DETROIT (WWJ) - In celebration of the Home Opener at Comerica Park Friday afternoon, the Detroit Tigers will be unveiling a new memorabilia store appropriately named “The D Shop.”
The 6,000 square-foot shop will feature all new apparel for men, women and children, along with unique items for your home and lifestyle.
The D Shop is conveniently located in the heart of Detroit’s sports and entertainment district on the corner of Witherell Street and Montcalm Avenue.
One of the store’s specialty items is a ProToast toaster, which toasts the Olde English D directly onto a piece of bread.
“Yeah, the toasters have been getting a lot of play, but there’s some really amazing items, unique home items that are in there. There’s a recliner with a big D on it, there’s a loveseat, there’s gardening utensils, barbecue items. Pretty much anything that you can think of that we can put a D on, it’s down there,” said Ron Colangelo, Vice President of Communications for the Detroit Tigers.
Even the ladies can find some great items at the store, such as official Tigers nail polish, Tigers bath salts and a new selection of Tigers jewelry.
The D Shop also includes a new selection of clothing for all Tigers fans. New retail items include the Alyssa Milano Touch line for women, apparel with Swarovski crystals, youth Adidas apparel, big and tall apparel, and more than 300 styles and designs of hats.
The design of the store pays tribute to the long-standing tradition of Tigers baseball and its many generations of fans, while representing the modern, young feel of the organization.
Fans are welcomed to the store by current player images on the exterior and ushered through the new facility by photos of Tigers greats.
The bright, modern store displays the new merchandise in easily accessible racks, lockers and wall hangings. The fresh décor includes numerous individually placed baseballs and beautiful Olde English D logos throughout the shop.
