MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The Milwaukee Brewers will host the 34th Annual Clubhouse Sale on Friday, December 5th and Saturday, December 6th from 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. inside the visiting clubhouse at Miller Park. The sale will feature savings of up to 80% on select items.
Fans lined up as early as 6 AM for doors that opened at 8 AM.
They say the deals are well worth the wait.
"This is my second Black Friday!" said Mike Rill, who was first in line.
Rill comes to the event with his mother. It's their annual tradition.
"My mom is the biggest brewer fan that I know so I do it for her," he said.
Fans can save on Brewers apparel, souvenirs and accessories as well as rare, game-used merchandise, including jerseys and bats. Brewers sales representatives will also be available to offer information and process requests for Holiday 4-Packs and more ticket packages.
One of the more popular items in the store turned out to be "grab jerseys." They're mystery jerseys at $75 apiece, wrapped in a paper bag to keep the suspense. You could get any player ranging from Rickie Weeks to Ryan Braun.
"They`re game used, so I was like ohhh must have!" said fan, Michelle Taylor.
Coupons of 10%, 20% and 30% off will be offered to the Brewers Team Store by Majestic for those spending $100, $200 and $300, respectively, at the clubhouse sale. Coupons are valid on December 5th and 6th only.
Around 4,000 shoppers are expected at the sale.
"It's not just things for men and women, but kids, dogs, obviously now, and the authentic business has really exploded," said Brewers VP of Communications, Tyler Barnes.
Whatever they buy, fans say they are leaving full of Brewers pride.
"They never give up, even when it`s the last three, or two outs, at the bottom of the ninth," said Taylor.
The Brewers Team Store by Majestic will feature a variety of activities during both days of the clubhouse sale. Eight prize drawings will be held at the team store each day. Prizes will include shopping sprees and special Authentic Collection packages at the Team Store. A meet-and-greet event with Brewers mascots will take place on December 5th from 10:00 a.m. – noon. Shoppers can take photos with Santa on December 6th from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Team Store. Fans should bring their own cameras.
In addition, when fans spend $125 or more, they will receive a special gift with their purchase – a pair of tickets to Brewers On Deck. This offer is valid while supplies last.
Shoppers can access the Clubhouse Sale by entering Miller Park at the Hot Corner entrance near the Brewers Team Store by Majestic and following the posted directions to the visiting clubhouse. Cash and credit cards will be accepted (no personal checks). Admission and parking is free.
