PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. While eager Pelham residents are getting ready for the NFC championship game between the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Modells is reaping the rewards.
The [Giants] products are moving fast, said Edgar Cordero, general manager of the Pelham Manor Modells. Every day, were getting new merchandize into the store. Giant fans are loving it, were loving it. To see the excitement of the fans coming in and stuff like that, its definitely good.
Cordero was quick to point out which three players products contributed most to the increase in sales, especially one star receiver in particular.
Mr. Cruz, Manning, and Pierre-Paul are hot tickets right now, he stated. We have an exclusive shirt here for Modells. A t-shirt of Mr. Cruz. Customers are liking this. Exclusive at Modells only. Its a good item. Its been selling very well.
He was confident that the Giants (11-7) could beat the 49ers (14-3) at Candlestick Park to advance to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
When they win [on Sunday], well be open Monday morning at 6:00, Cordero said. Well have all the championship merchandise and everything. Hopefully, it could be a repeat of [Super Bowl] 42 or 2000. Either way, I think its gonna be good for the fans. The fans are gonna love it.
Dave Katz, owner of The Depot Market and a diehard Giants fan, cannot wait for Sunday to arrive.
Ill be at my house with my family, my good luck charms, and Ill be praying to the football gods for a Giant victory, he stated. Im hoping the football gods will be watching over the New York Football Giants. 17-15 Giants.
Rockwells will be full for the Patriots and Ravens game in addition to the Giants game, according to manager, Dwight Findlay.
Yes, we are [busy], he said. Usually, pretty good. Pretty decent. We have fans for both games, especially for the Ravens. We have a lot of Ravens fans.
