Butler Opens Spirit Shop In Hinkle Fieldhouse

Butler University and the Butler University Athletic Department are pleased to announce the opening of the newly-constructed Spirit Shop in Hinkle Fieldhouse. The store will be open during Saturday’s men’s basketball game between Butler and Ohio State, both of which are in this week’s AP and ESPN/USA Today Top 25 national rankings.

“We are very pleased to offer a retail outlet at Hinkle Fieldhouse,” said Mike Freeman, Associate Athletic Director for External Operations. “People often ask where they can get the latest Butler gear and now we can direct them right to Hinkle.”

The Spirit Store will open with hours that mirror the Hinkle Fieldhouse Ticket Office: Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with extended hours on Wednesdays until 7:00 p.m. The Spirit Shop – operated through a partnership with Follett Higher Education Group – will also be open during men’s and women’s basketball games throughout the winter season.

The Spirit Shop will offer a wide variety of Bulldog apparel and merchandise, including specific items that will only be available at the Hinkle location and products from Butler’s official apparel provider Nike. The Spirit Shop is located just inside Gate 4 of Hinkle Fieldhouse.
