We Cataldos have been on a continued hunt for 2016 Cubs World Series gear! After hunting around fruitlessly for a couple days after the big win, we waited impatiently for stores to get some shirts, hats, and other gear in stock.
After one of my readers spotted Cubs World Series T-shirts at JC Penney, we headed over to check them out. I was ready to plunk down $27.95 for a shirt for myself, as I had a $10-off-$25 coupon that had come in the mail. JCP would not take the coupon though, as they said it wasn’t valid on the World Series gear.
I was irritated with this and decided I’d get a Cubs shirt at a later date. Meanwhile, my boys also wanted Cubs World Series shirts of their own. Our household’s two resident White Sox fans even expressed interest in sporting some Cubbie blue after our historic win. (How about that!) However, the prospect of spending close to $150 on five T-shirts made this bargain-hunter cringe more than a bit.
Yesterday, my husband was out shopping and happened to wander into TJ Maxx, where they had a big display of official MLB 2016 Cubs World Series shirts! Who would have thought? Child-size shirts are $9.99, and adult-size shirts are $14.99!
TJ Maxx had three different shirt styles — dark grey, light grey, and Cubbie blue. He bought three dark grey for the adult Cataldos, a light grey child-size for our youngest son, and a men’s small in blue for our oldest son, as the blue shirts were the only style available in 100% cotton.
If you’re still on the hunt for 2016 World Series Cubs gear, you may want to check out TJ Maxx! After my husband arrived home with a bag full of Cubs shirts, I took a look at TJ Maxx’s site to see if these items were also available online — they’re not. Still, it’s worth a trip to the store to save amost half what these shirts are going for elsewhere.
