Ready for the big football games this Thanksgiving holiday? Forget the cranberry sauce and cornbread stuffing – what you really need is a game day jersey and some team gear in your favorite colors.

Rally House Texas, which opened in Old Town September 1st and has several sites in Dallas, says they’re doing a booming business with schools like Baylor (5) and TCU (6) in the top ten, others hoping for bowl bids and the Dallas Cowboys tied for first in the NFC East. They’ve stocked up on everything from hoodies to earmuffs, beer mugs to house shoes, and they’re offering special holiday hours beginning Wednesday this week.

They will be closed Thanksgiving and Christmas days, but open 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Nov. 26, Dec. 1-4 and 8-11. They’ll be open 8-10 Nov. 28 and 29, Dec. 5, 6, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22 and 23. Hours are 10-8 Nov. 30. It’s 9-8 Dec. 7 and 14 and they’re open 7-11 Dec. 19 and 20. Christmas Eve hours are 8-6. Whitney Cochran, Lake Highlands grad and employee at the store, says they are also hiring seasonal sales associates. The Old Town store is located at 5500 Greenville Avenue Suite 203 near Freebirds World Burrito.

Happy shopping, and go Cowboys!
