Jet's Fan Appreciation Day Sale

I got an email a week ago saying Winnipeg Jets Fan Appreciation Day. Like 30 to 50% off clothing. I was thinking "Sweet I will buy some things." Then I looked at it and it said MTS ICEPLEX in Winnipeg Manitoba ONLY.

Why wasn't it on the shop.nhl.com site or official online Jets store?

I live in South Dakota USA, like 450 miles south of Winnipeg. I took a vacation to Winnipeg since I have never been there before. I went to my first hockey game back in April 2010. It was the playoff's, Hamilton Bulldogs vs Manitoba Moose. Bought a $40 front row ticket and had an amazing time seeing it go into 2OT. I was hooked watching hockey after that.

I went to the Winnipeg Jets @ Minnesota Wild this year and it blew me away! Had like Row 5 and saw lot's of action!

I was REALLY looking forward to buying LOTS of JETS gear. They're Jets fans in the USA. I met a guy living in St. Paul Minnesota rooting for the Jets.

I hope there is a online sale in the future for the Jets.

Here is a video of my experience at the Moose game.

NHL.com shop is run by the NHL Jets can't have sales on there only at their retail stores in Winnipeg, MTS ICEPlex, MTSC, and their other store in WPG.

What about buying some gear at regular price, rather than LOTS of gear on sale?

I went to Jets Gear St. Vital on the day of the sale. It was bananas. I couldn't even get into the store.

Need to do a better job of communicating that. Should have been on 1290.

When was the sale? Was this on April 7? If so, then yeah, it was a pretty good sale. Managed to cop another fitted hat for 25% off. Thought about buying another jersey, but decided against it since I already have the home and away.

Kinda o/t but not really - does anyone know how long the Jets Gear store will have inaugural patches for?

They would have to squeeze it in between their NFL and NBA coverage.

In this day and age of the internet, you might be surprised to hear that the Winnipeg Jets use their official website to communicate news to their fans.

Pop in every once in a while and you'll never miss an announcement like this.

The sale was advertised, prominently in both the Free Press and the Sun, plus on the Jets' website and the Jets app.

I checked out the store at the Iceplex, picked up a plastic Jets stick for my kid. It was actually my first time in the Iceplex. Pretty great facility.

Sorry everyone, should have made it more prominent.
