Montgomery business benefiting from Bama's National Championship

Posted by: Bryan Henry - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - All is well with Tide fans, especially the ones we found at the Bama Fever, Tiger Pride store at Eastdale Mall in Montgomery.

"Roll Tide, we're number one!" said an avid fan.

It is here where the cash register never stopped ringing. By late today more than 2,000 customers had come through and snapped up caps and T-shirts. Store officials tell WSFA 12 News the average customer is spending between $75 and $150, and they're buying just about anything with an 'A' on it.

This is Alabama's first title in nearly 20 years.

"I was at the '92 championship game at the Sugar Bowl. That's close to my heart because I think it was more surprising we beat Miami than this game (Texas)," said another fan.

Some say Alabama's win Thursday was the school's 8th national title while others insist it's number 13. Either way no one would deny Eloise Fry's trip to Bama Fever, Tiger Pride.

Fry showed up this morning with one goal in mind.

"I have several shirts I need to buy for my nephews and nieces. We're the best in the country," said Fry.

An undefeated season, another national championship, happy campers in 'Bama country.
