PHILADELPHIA - If you're looking to buy a souvenir of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, there's now a place you can shop in person.

The Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee opened its official store in the concourse of the Comcast Center, 1701 John F. Kennedy Blvd., on Wednesday.

The store sells one-of-a-kind apparel, buttons, drink-ware and accessories, all with designs centered around Philadelphia 2016.

"The opening of the pop-up shop is a great opportunity for Philadelphia residents as well as convention visitors to bring home special items commemorating the convention in Philadelphia," said Kevin Washo, executive director of the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee. "Much of this merchandise was designed by local artists, showcasing some of the incredible talent that exists here, and the host committee is proud to support their efforts for such a high profile event."

Impact Dimensions worked with seven artists and apparel designers to create the merchandise, which depicts Philadelphia and its history in fun, unique images.

"As the official merchandise provider for the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee, we are honored to provide local artists with the opportunity to share their creative work with a national and international audience," said Luis Liceaga, president of Philadelphia-based Impact Dimensions LLC. "We thank all of the partners who have made this possible and look forward to seeing our merchandise around town, on convention attendees and Philadelphia fans alike."

The 400-square-foot shop will be open daily through August 5 from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

The host committee also plans to open pop-up stores at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and at 30th Street Station.

If you can't make it to Philadelphia, you can shop online.
