VERMILLION, S.D. -- The University of South Dakota is opening a holiday gift store in the Empire Mall on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014. The store will stock Coyote logo apparel and gift items, and will be open until Dec. 31.
The store will be located inside the main north entrance, near Caribou Coffee and White House, Black Market.
Last year USD sold logo merchandise from a cart in the mall center court during the holidays, and this year is upgrading to an in-line store, the former location of Hat World. The 650-square-foot space will be stocked floor-to-ceiling with red and white Coyote gear, including an exclusive vintage line featuring the cartoon Charlie Coyote. Other specialty items include replica football helmets, glassware, flags, bedding and décor.
