Do you have UND sport fans in your household? Do you like a good deal? Then this Thursday and Friday, Aug. 25 & 26th could be your lucky day! The Sioux Shop (located at the Ralph Engelstad Arena) is hosting a “Fire Sale” at the (attached) Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. The sale is from 12pm-8pm both days. The whole family can show its team spirit at a fraction of the original cost!

Items on sale survived the fire this past summer at the Ralph and will be 40% off the original cost. There are slight signs of damage from the fire but most items are said to have no visible damage. All sales are final, and no exchanges or returns will be given on Fire Sale merchandise.

Items currently in the Sioux Shop are not included in the Fire Sale discount.

Doors will open at noon, and guests are asked to park on the north side of the building and enter through the main doors.
