At University Bookstore, Vice President Kevin Phelps recommends customers place a pre-order.

“There’s definitely supply-chain issues right now and getting product is tough,” said Phelps. “But we’re getting it as quickly as we can.”

He says placing an order online is a way to ensure you get your item in the style and size you prefer.

“Everyone wants the championship gear,” said Phelps. “T-Shirts and hats are what everybody wants.”

Local business owners say shopping small for NBA swag can make a big difference.

“We always try to promote shop local,” said Phelps. “The money stays here, the employees are here. We think that’s a pretty big deal.”

Schoeneberg says her store’s employees have a passion to connect with fellow fans.

“I think we really feel the emotion in a smaller shop,” she said. “We did it. The city of Milwaukee deserves this and the state of Wisconsin deserves this too.”
