The DuckWear Depot debuts at the Duck Pond!

Madison, WI – May 27, 2008. Maynard dares you to say that five times in a row! The DuckWear Depot, located down the third-base line, features a covered & lighted shopping experience full of your favorite Mallards goodies.

“We’re excited to offer fans the opportunity to browse in a spacious environment at their own leisure,” said Mallards G.M. Vern Stenman.

Merchandise Manager Nick Staehler can’t wait to see fans reactions after working endless hours to get the store ready for Opening Day.

“I’m anxious to hear input from fans after walking through the store,” said Staehler. “It’s going to be a hands-on experience like nothing we’ve offered before.”

New Mallards merchandise offered this season includes: Alternate logo hats, t-shirts, & jersey’s; All-Star Game t-shirts & polo’s; travel coffee mugs; seat cushions; and even Mallards golf balls!

Maynard advises that you don’t use these golf balls on holes surrounding water as ducks do not like being disturbed by bad golf shots.

Come celebrate the grand opening of Maynard’s locally-sourced burger joint & watch the One Millionth Fan statue be revealed! Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. to begin the festivities!
