Olympic Merchandise: Buy Early Or At The Games?

Sat Dec 19, 2009 5:18 pm

I'm wondering if I should buy olympic pins, apparel, mascot stuff, and other things like that online at the Olympic Store or will it be cheaper in Vancouver.

Also, would it be cheaper before, during, or after the games? I'm in Vancouver until Mar 4.

Any tips? Thanks!

Quoting StarAlliance38 (Thread starter):
after the games?

My guess would be that couple weeks (days?) after the games finish everything will go on sale....?

Wait until after the Games, as folks will be trying to move that stuff ASAP. I'd even check eBay, as I'm sure some folks plunked a chunk of change on Olympic merchandise in hopes of turning a profit (The Olympics always seem to get folks thinking that the Games being held in their area is an opportunity to make a ton of money, but usually this backfires.). I remember not too long after the 1996 Summer Olympics here in Atlanta, I bought several 1996 Olympic items at Sports Authority for about half price (including a Swiss Army Knife.). Then again, you never know what could be the "must-have" Olympic item is, look at the popularity of the hats Roots made for the 2002 Games in SLC.
