Eagles Super Bowl merchandise flying out of stores in Berks

Video report by WFMZ's Katiera Winfrey

SPRING TWP., Pa. - It didn't take long after the Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl for championship merchandise to begin flying out of stores in Berks County.

Dick's Sporting Goods opened its Broadcasting Square store in Spring Township right after the game Sunday night, and the store reopened at 6 a.m. Monday.

By late-morning, tables that had been full of t-shirts and hats were all but empty, with just a few winter hats remaining.

With celebrations continuing, stores are ordering more gear, keeping places like Kinteco Screen Printing in Muhlenberg Township busy.

"We did several thousand of the championship shirts so far," said Kinteco owner Karen Philip.

Employees were there since 3 a.m., making championship shirts for a private vendor in Philadelphia.

"We came in at halftime. Our staff was ready to go. We watched the end of the game. As soon as the game ended, we had to get started," said Philip.

Whether you doubted the underdogs or believed the Eagles would fly, Super Bowl 52 won't be a fleeting memory.

"It's not just a win for the people that are here. It's a win for the people that have gone before us," said longtime fan Debbie Bitting.

Berks-based Boscov's is selling a variety of championship merchandise on its website. It's expected to be available in stores Tuesday morning.
