Falcons merchandise flying off Augusta shelves

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

It seems Augusta has Falcons fever.

Several sporting goods stores in the CSRA say Falcons merchandise is flying off the shelves, mainly in the form of T-shirts and hats.

The Falcons host the 49ers in the NFC Championship game Sunday afternoon.

Though the Falcons are underdogs, a few stores are gearing up for a win.

Academy Sports and Outdoors in Evans and Dick's Sporting Goods at the Augusta Mall will begin selling Falcons NFC Champions merchandise as soon as the game is over, if the Falcons win.

"We should still be open when the game ends, unless its four overtimes or something. Even if we were closed, we would reopen," says Academy Sports and Outdoors Store Director Ken Fehrenbach. "And if they win the Super Bowl, that would be the plan, to reopen and sell the product for the Super Bowl champions."

Kickoff for the NFC Title game is set for 3 p.m. right here on Fox 54.
