LIDS Sports Group, the Indianapolis-based operator of the North American LIDS retail chain, in collaboration with the National Football League, is pleased to announce its plans for this year's NFL Experience Driven by GMC concessions business – the NFL SHOP at Super Bowl Presented by Visa.  
 
In an innovative spin on the traditional concept for this venue, the retailer has switched gears to focus on creating a fan destination for Super Bowl-goers to include the industry's latest offerings in product customization and entertainment features.  The 30,000 square foot pop up shop will be open to the public from January 25 through February 4, 2013.
 
"We are truly excited for this opportunity to make a statement of how our retail game plan is constantly evolving, and to showcase that we are able magnify what we do every day in our more than 1,000 LIDS and LIDS Locker Room locations to meet Super Bowl fan expectations for years to come," said LIDS Sports Group President Ken Kocher.
 
"This is another example of our determination to prove LIDS Sports Group is a major stakeholder in more than just the headwear category."  The specialty retailer and all-inclusive team sports dealer, primarily known for its headwear stores, has been recently fueling its growth through a more localized, team-specific storefront banner with product selections such as jerseys, fan apparel and team-branded novelty items.
 
"In looking for a world class leader to help us achieve our retail objectives for the NFL Experience in New Orleans, LIDS' offerings and willingness to push the envelope to provide a unique fan experience stood out – as is evident in their expanding event retailing efforts," said Leo Kane , NFL senior vice president of consumer products.  "We are excited to work with LIDS to deliver to our fans more ways to celebrate their teams and Super Bowl XLVII." 
 
The NFL Experience shop will offer sports enthusiasts a wide variety of officially licensed Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Super Bowl XLVII apparel and memorabilia, ranging from the latest fashion trends to on-field gear.
