Talk to any die hard Sharks fan and they’ll tell you that it’s always fashionable to reveal your teal. On any game night when the Sharks are playing at HP Pavilion, it’s not uncommon to walk through downtown San Jose and see fans wearing Sharks jerseys, hats, pins, t-shirts, jewelry and even the occasional foam finger in preparation for the game.
But every April, as the Stanley Cup Playoffs get underway, fans young and old can be seen wearing Sharks merchandise throughout the Bay Area. True fans or front runners? Rarely will you find an individual willing to admit that they just recently bought their merchandise for fear of looking like a late comer. But increased sales and activity at the Sharks official merchandise store located at HP Pavilion suggest otherwise.
The Sharks store is located at HP Pavilion at San Jose. The address is 525 W. Santa Clara St., San Jose, CA 95113. The store is open 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday on non-game days. On game days, the store will close at 5 p.m. and then re-open at 6:15 p.m. and will remain open until the game ends. The Sharks store is open one hour prior to the start of the game on Sundays when there is a Sharks game.
