Can anyone confirm that they've actually seen the Ticat Store in Jackson Square open?
A month ago, I drove downtown after work one evening to order a custom shirt for my kid, and pick up some other gear for a family member I was going to visit. Figured they could do the custom order and they'd have the best selection of other stuff. Closed - OK fine, Jackson Square doesn't open at night like a healthy mall.
A few weeks ago, headed down on a Saturday for the same reason. Got to be open Saturday, right. Nope -closed - closes at 4:00 Saturday and it was 4:15.
Today, headed down again, payed the 5 bucks to park, and headed in - 1:15PM, got plenty of time, right. Nope, closed again, although according to the posted hours it should be open. No explanation - maybe it doesn't open on game day?
My mistake - as a fan, I should be aware of the myriad of factors that go into determining whether your store will open on any given day or not. But should I really have to work so hard to buy a damn jersey. It's all well and good to keep your store in a struggling mall to support downtown renewal,or to get cheap rent, but stores that are never open don't revitalize a downtown, and they don't make money to pay the rent.
I still love you, put on a good show tonight and I'll hire a crackerjack team of researchers to find out how I can go about getting my son a Cody jersey in time for Christmas.
