I work in Milton so while on my lunch today, I decided to go to the Adidas store at the Outlet Mall to see if there was any of the new Adidas CFL Ticats gear.
I walked into the store and right at the entrance was a whole lot of Argos stuff, nothing at all for the Ticats. I went around the store thinking there might something else. But no Ticats or other CFL teams for that matter.
This location is almost exactly the same distance from downtown Hamilton or Toronto, so why not have both teams? And since the outlet mall is somewhat a tourist stop, there should be items from all the teams, especially since this is the first year of the CFL /Adidas agrement and they would want as much exposure as possible.
This is not the only store in the Milton/Oakville/Cambridge area that sells only Agros stuff. I have found that the Walmart in those areas do not sell Ticats gear, at least that I've seen.
Who decides what to sell? The individual store or has the CFL determined that they only want to push the Argos on the people around the Hamilton area in hopes to build their fan base, while leaving Hamilton fans to go to the store at THF or to buy on line?
