Gamecock Nation won’t have to wait for days to get its College World Series national championship gear this year.
It is here now.
Last year, USC fans had to wait as retailers scrambled to fill a rush of orders. But when that final Florida fly ball landed in Jackie Bradley Jr.’s glove Tuesday night, propelling USC to back-to-back national championships, retailers were prepared.
“Last year, we went into it totally dark. We’d never experienced (a national championship),” said Bryan Harmon, collegiate buyer for Jewelry Warehouse, which has four Midlands locations. “We’ve got a better grasp this year of what to order.”
Suppliers also were more prepared to handle those orders this year.
