Introducing Cardinal Closet, an online spirit wear shop for Concordia University Ann Arbor apparel.
This fall, Concordia leadership made the decision to transfer Concordia’s apparel to an online presence, making it more accessible to Cardinal fans of all ages and stages.
The store is easily accessible at shop.cuaa.edu, thanks to university partners and Ann Arbor custom apparel mogul Underground Printing.
“The Cardinal Closet will give more Concordia fans an opportunity to support and sport their Cardinal gear wherever they go,” said Vice President of Administration Rev. Dr. Ryan Peterson. “We are also excited to give current students more space on campus and greater accessibility to apparel.”
What was once known as The Egg, operating as a physical spirit wear store in The Nest in CUAA’s Student Union, has now been transformed into a student lounge providing additional study and hang-out space for Concordia students.
Concordia and UGP have slowly been rolling out the new store and apparel options, offering the gear at large university events—like home football games—to get a feel for what items are most popular and what types of things Cardinal fans would want to purchase.
With the ability to update apparel options quickly, the partnership with UGP allows for on-demand printing, customization orders for internal groups on campus, flexibility and accessibility to change items in a timely manner.
Another bonus? Orders can be delivered to your doorstep in as quickly as two business days for a small shipping fee.
Cardinal Closet currently features an initial roll-out of apparel for purchase. Keep an eye out for new items constantly being added by checking the shop or following Cardinal Closet on Twitter.
