The Buffalo Sabres New Era Store is now open at KeyBank Center, and beginning today fans will be able to purchase the Sabres 50th Season Commemorative Jersey at the brand-new shop.
The store is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sabres and Bandits game nights.
New Era Cap's naming rights to the store signify just one element of the partnership renewal agreement that is centered around maximizing the fan experience.
"The Buffalo Sabres New Era Store simplifies the fan shopping experience by more efficiently presenting merchandise with the ability to accommodate more people on busy game nights," said Dan Misko, PSE's senior vice president of business development. "We're glad that our partners at New Era Cap have collaborated in enhancing this space and will be continuing to present a number of in-game elements that have become fan favorites over the last several years."
"As the official cap of the Buffalo Sabres, this was an important opportunity for us to be able to expand our partnership with the team as we help to enhance the experience of all fans," said Josh Feine, Vice President of Sports Marketing, Corporate Partnerships & Business Development at New Era Cap. "The Buffalo Sabres New Era Store will feature a much greater assortment of New Era products making it an essential stop while visiting downtown Buffalo."
