RICHMOND, Va. -- Devant, a national licensee for the 2013 U.S. Open Championship, enjoyed record sales in the merchandise tent at Merion Golf Club during this year's championship. Golf fans were bringing home a piece of history as they purchased the commemorative towels. Devant offered a collection of five different high-end towels all sporting a unique U.S. Open Championship design. By early Sunday afternoon, the U.S. Open Collection by Devant was sold out.
"Devant has been privileged to be part of the U.S. Open for many years and this has been one of the best years for us in the Merchandise Pavilion," said Lizzie Leasure, sales and marketing manager. "Philadelphia loves golf and really showed their support for the championship. We brought in two extra shipments and still sold out on Sunday. It was a great week!"
The most popular Devant towel among golf fans in the merchandise tent was the 16x25 inch Classic Edge towel made of 100-percent cotton with the 2013 U.S. Open logo and USGA logo. Devant also offered a Pro Edge 100-percent cotton towel with a list of the winners of each championship since 1895, the Ultimate Microfiber towel with U.S. Open and USGA logos, a cotton woven towel with the U.S. Open and USGA logos, and a Scrubber Tri-fold towel with the U.S. Open logo embroidered on the top of the towel.
