New York Jets fans woke up Friday morning with bad memories after their beloved team lost to Tim Tebow and the Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver Thursday night, dropping their record to 5-5.
But fans can wipe away the bad and replace them with some good memories when Jets tight end Dustin Keller visits Levittown Saturday afternoon for the grand opening of the sports apparel and equipment store’s newest location on Long Island.
Keller will be on hand for the grand opening celebration starting at 2 p.m. But as added incentive to visit the new store before the tight end arrives, festivities will start at 8 a.m. with the first 250 customers receiving “mystery bucks” ranging from $5 to $500, the company said. Long Islanders will also have a chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree. There will also be hourly $100 cash drawings.
“We are excited to open our new location in Levittown where we will provide industry-leading customer service and a complete selection of quality sporting good products,” Darrell Webb, president and CEO of Sports Authority, said in a statement. “Sports Authority truly believes in celebrating the good in sports and with these new locations, we are not only creating local jobs, we’re also providing great value and service to the athletes and organizations in these communities.”
Keller caught five passes for 40 yards during the rare Thursday night game. He has 36 receptions and 513 receiving yards on the season.
There are currently 464 Sports Authority stores in 45 states across the country.
The Levittown store is located at 3505 Hempstead Turnpike adjacent to the Nassau Mall.
