Frisco Fans Without Bison Gear? NDSU Bookstore’s Got You Covered…Literally
When people call Frisco Fargo South, they do it seriously.
This city has truely become a second home to the thousands of fans who make the annual 1,062 mile trip.
And just like at home in Fargo, if you forgot to pack your lucky sweatshirt, or just want to do some last minute shopping, the NDSU bookstore has you covered.
T–shirts, sweatshirts, pins, hats…even mini Thundars…you name it, the Bison Bookstore has got it.
Only not the one on Administation Avenue…I’m talking about the one posted in the lobby of a Marriott in Plano Texas.
“It’s our fifth time coming so it gets easier and easier, we have such a great team at the bookstore whether its it’s web packing, shipping, everybody works together to make the process easier and easier,” says NDSU Bookstore’s Associative Director Kim Anvinson.
With no shortage of supplies, this bookstore stays open from 10am to 10 pm…looking to fill the vacant shelves that some fans may have, or to help overflow them.
Kenneth Carlson, a Moorhead native, has been to all five games.
“Can always use t-shirts and caps so, payday is tomorrow so I’m sure I can find another hoodie into my collection,” says Carlson.
Carlson grew up going to games at Dakota Field and the Fargodome but has lived in Texas for more than a decade, and relishes the opportunity to help get people on board with the Bison any way he can.”
“You know my company, I told my company we sell team merchandise, you have to invest in this because these people are coming down here by the thousands. Nobody believed me until I showed them how many of them are coming down,” says Carlson.
While some of the items for sale are your basic green and gold Bison gear, a few are limited edition designs.”
“This year, we actually did a few designs. In past, we did the four-peat and another design this year we kind of spread ourselves out. We did several designs, the Drive for Five, On the Road Again and we have a couple Frisco exclusives so we’re waiting to see how it shakes out here.”
Just like how they are waiting to see how things shake out on the field.
