Buying an Oilers Jersey
 
What would be the best place in Edmonton or online to buy an Oilers jersey? I don't want anything fake.

I went to the NHL.com site, where they have crested jerseys for $179.99 + $7.29 shipping. I was told that this would be the cheapest way if I didn't mind waiting for shipping. I want to get a RNH jersey, but the preview has NUGENTFHOPKINS on the back for some reason. I'm also not sure if it's the correct size and style since his name is so long.

Does anyone know of anything better? Thanks in advance for any help.

Pro Am Sports (south Edmonton common, and mayfield common) and Jersey City (Kingsway, Southgate and WEM) are good starts. The Oilers store at Kingsway and the Game On Sports at Millwoods Town Center and Londonderry are good as well, I would avoid the WEM Game On, the manager there is a knob.

If the prices are the same as when I was manager at Millwoods (couple years ago mind you) un-crested jerseys are around 130 and pro-crested jerseys usually run from 230-240

Oilers store will sell you a legit jersey. Haha, I don't know prices, I just go to where I know I'll get my legit product :P

I would stick to the Oilers store. If you know a season ticket holder you can get it for $200 after taxes. The nhlstore site adds a bunch of extras like duty fees or something like that when your about to buy it so its never a deal, plus you have to wait a long time to get it.

Btw, has anyone bought the new away jersey? They seem to fit a lot bigger than the home ones for some reason.:dunno:

5RingsAndABeer 10-13-2011 05:33 PM

Thanks for the advice guys. I can't wait to rock RNH's jersey at the Capitals game :)

just to add on to that, The Game On Sports stores also honor that discount, you get 15 percent if you are an Oilers STH and 10 percent if you are a Oil Kings/Rush/Eskimos STH.

I see only darkness 10-13-2011 06:08 PM

So with discount your cost will be 234.99-35.25 (15%) =199.75 + 9.99 tax
=209.74

But the above poster was right my L home Jersey fits perfect but the L away jersey seems a bit bigger

Agreed treats my family like trash when we go in there. Buddy went for an interview that lasted 5 minutes cause the manager had to go out for lunch..didnt get the job obviously

Can you get an RNH jersey now? I kept getting told they won't be available for a while

Not sure how the math worked out but it was $200 and a few cents.

And that sums it up for my Medium jerseys.

I'm with you there, the manager was a complete tool.

While looking for jerseys he kept on trying to push other useless crap on me.

For what it's worth, I've actually had really good service when i went to game on sports in WEM. I'm pretty sure I dealt with the same guy a couple times and he was really helpful and I ended up getting a jersey for dirt cheap because he told me he could sell it for less than the stickerprice (because it was a Moreau jersey).

If it is the manager of the GOS, his schtick is that he tries to convince you that you are getting a sweet deal that nobody else could give, however Game On Sports policy is (was?) that once a player is no longer playing with the team the prices goes down 50% ASAP, and it keeps going down until it finally clears. (My store had a Mihknov jersey until it went for 29.99)

There are other problems with him as well, but they have no place on a hockey message board (how he treats staff/strange hiring patterns)

I've never been inclined buy a jersey, but damn, these new retro uniforms look amazing.

AlesFan 10-14-2011 10:46 AM

I highly recommend the Jersey City at Southgate the Manager, Janet, is always friendly and provides top notch customer service. I get all my jersey’s there both crested and uncrested.

Gentle Jake Virtanen 10-14-2011 12:04 PM

I've bought and Esks and Oilers jersey from the Jersey City in WEM and I've been treated well both times. Staff aren't pushy and the prices are reasonable.

Yeah Jersey City at southgate was pretty nice.

During the summer, my wife bought me an Eskimo jersey at The Sports Closet in Sherwood Park Mall. They have tons of Oilers stuff as well and were absolutely great to deal with.

I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. If their policy is to go down 50% and then down to $29.99, isn't he right to think that nobody else (jersey city, etc) will offer that price? I'm not sure if this was the manager or not, but he was friendly, and he did tell me he could reduce the price from what it was listed at down to $29.99. He wasn't pushy at all though, just gave me my options. I figured that's a pretty good price for a Jersey, and it's not like it's Pronger or something. He told me they probably couldn't give away the Souray jersey they had.

I think Muscles is saying that the owner makes it seem like you are getting a crazy deal when it is store policy (and everyone that comes into that store would get an equally good deal).

That is called good salesmanship. Always treat your customer like he/she is special.

Hey Gang,

I'm living in Boston and trying to get my lady a women's Retro (home or away) Pajaarvi (size S or M) before the game on Nov 10th. NHL.com can't get it to me on time.

Anyone know of a place online that can deliver ontime and would carry a good chunk of oilers stuff?

What about any of the stores mentioned. Obviously I can't go browse them, but: a) do they have an online site, or b) anyone noticed that they have a bunch of women's jerseys?... if so, phone numbers?

Thanks in advance!

The only women's jersey they carry is the old navy blue one (which is the current 3rd). Unfortunately that won't help in finding a retro.

I believe I saw a women's Paajarvi jersey at Game on Sports or Jersey City within the last week.
Here are the numbers for either one..
Game on Sports: (780) 406-8512
Jersey City: 780-435-3788

Give them a shot and hopefully they'll have something for you.

True, but there is a difference between building a rapport with a customer and insulting his/her intelligence.
