The store opened Sunday night after the Royals defeated the New York Mets in game five of the World Series so customers could purchase officially licensed team merchandise after the game. Hofheins said the store had sold out of many items, including the grey, short-sleeve, 2015 Royals World Series Championship T-shirts. Hofheins made several trips to Warrensburg to bring additional merchandise to the store and was planning on at least one more trip Monday evening to stock the shelves for the championship parade in downtown Kansas City today at noon.
