Sales of New Wildlife Diversity T-shirt Expand
RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 22, 2012) - Prompted by requests from people unable to attend the N.C. State Fair in Raleigh, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and Neuse Sport Shop announced on Friday an agreement to expand sales of a new wildlife diversity T-shirt from the N.C. State Fair in Raleigh to Neuse Sport Shop's store in Kinston as well as its online store, www.nssnc.com
The T-shirt's front features the smallmouth bass art from this year's State Fair button leaping across the agency's wildlife logo, while the back features all 32 previous State Fair buttons dating back to the original squirrel button in 1981.
T-shirts are available in youth and adult sizes. Prices are $12 for youth shirts, $15 for adult shirts.
Fabrication of the T-shirts was paid entirely by Neuse Sport Shop. The initial set of 700 T-shirts donated to the Wildlife Commission was sold at the Commission's State Fair tent. All proceeds from T-shirts sold during the 11-day fair will fund the Commission's Wildlife Diversity Program.
Sales of additional T-shirts by Neuse Sport Shops will generate revenue for wildlife diversity based on five percent of gross T-shirt sales.
Wildlife diversity T-shirts are for sale at Neuse Sport Shop located at 225 East New Bern Road in Kinston. Or order online at www.nssnc.com
