Rice Athletics is pleased to announce the opening of a new fan store, Shop Rice Owls, this Saturday, March 24. There will be a grand opening celebration at 11 a.m. with ticket and merchandise giveaways, an appearance from Sammy the Owl, and more. The 1,071 square-foot store located at 2567 Amherst Street in Rice Village will feature fan favorites like Owls t-shirts, hats, and polos for the whole family – including items not available elsewhere – and will be the first off-campus retail outlet dedicated to Rice merchandise.
"We're extremely excited to open Shop Rice Owls, and grateful to our partners who have helped make this store a reality: Follett, adidas, Rice Management Company, and Trademark Property", said Paul Lockhart-Korris, Rice Athletics Director of Business Strategy. "Our fans, alumni, and supporters now have an option to purchase Owls gear at a dedicated location off campus, and we can now bring our brand to a wider audience in Rice Village and the surrounding neighborhoods."
Shop Rice Owls will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
