Sabres offer fans big discount on merchandise

By Mike Harrington

NHL teams are starting their make-goods to fans in the wake of the lockout and the Sabres have jumped right in with the announcement of a Fan Appreciation Sale at the Sabres Store that will see all items discounted 50 percent throughout training camp and the first home game.

In addition to its normal hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the store will be open for all training camp practices that are open to the public.

"Our fans showed tremendous patience and loyalty during the past few months,” team president Ted Black said in a statement. "Nothing will erase the pain of a lockout and cancelled games but we wanted to give back to our fans in this way to get them excited for what is sure to be a fast-paced and thrilling 2012-13 season.”

Camp is scheduled to begin Sunday while the regular season schedule remains up in the air. We believe it will begin with a Jan. 20 afternoon home game against Philadelphia.

This is a nice move by the Sabres. I hope they do more. There are certain things they can't logistically do, like offer a $200 season ticket like the Lightning will be doing or free tickets in January and February to kids 12 and under like several outlets are saying the Stars may do. 

Here's a good package offered by the Penguins:  Free selected concession items and 50 percent off at the team store for the first four games.
