Merch Sales Update

Despite the trademark snag it appears folks around town, and around the world, still can’t get enough Vegas Golden Knights gear.

In a recent story on 8 News Now (they still call it that?) The Creator mentioned a few merchandise sales numbers that perked my ears. That portion of the story has since disappeared into the deep web. So we reached out ourselves, and here’s what we heard back.

Our operated store sales are $173,000 as of Wednesday. No slow down on the NHL store. I don’t have current numbers. -The Creator

From my recollection of that story, the number from the online store was pushing $500,000, but I must admit there’s a chance my memory has failed me on that cause I couldn’t stop laughing about this. Oh my!

Either way, those are pretty astounding numbers considering the amount of hatred for the name. Not to mention that $173k number is referencing just the store at T-Mobile Arena, and their selection has really not changed at all since the unveil.

The Creator added that sales are consistent and have not been affected by the trademark issue. It was just an email, but he didn’t seem terribly concerned about the situation calling it, “simply a process.”

    Sadly and until he proves otherwise there nothing he says that can be trusted or accepted as true.

    If we look at things from the start offering a vote, team names, jersey readiness, tm’s and so on he has proven to be less than honest over and over again. Furthermore without anything to compare it to is that a good number? What happens when the hype dies?

      JMO,
      If you haven’t done so, listen to the last podcast. If you’re short on time, start at around the 45 minute mark.
      The boys nailed it.
      In the meantime, feel free to enjoy Channel 8’s first Brad Doty moment.

    $173K made at the arena? That’s what – about 6 hoodies and 2 hats sold? Prices are crazy there. Haven’t been to other locations but I would guess it’s not as high.

    I hate to break it to everyone but 42 43 45 stores? Plus all of online sales and not even $1M buckaroo. This is the biggest month they will have followed by start of season and if playoff contention. If you do the quick math this team is bleeding merchandising money right now. They need to gobble up all associated outlets online (domains) to redirect, get flyers, print and TV commercials going and fast. This name hiccup is likely holding back a lot of that though admittedly or not.

    Less than $1M in merch with 40+ stores and online, yikes that isn’t good enough to get a deal on shark tank.

    • We have no idea how much merch has been sold outside of just the single store at T-Mobile. The online numbers are almost certainly well north of $500,000 as was described in that story that was pulled. The numbers should easily eclipse $1M if we count all the stores.

    When the secondary logo becomes more widely available sales will sky rocket. That and jerseys.
