The U.S. Golf Association recently signed a three-year deal with Indianapolis-based MainGate Inc. in which MainGate will operate the merchandise website and catalog program for the USGA.

The relationship began this month with the launch of the website USGAshop.com and the production and distribution of the fall merchandise catalog, which will feature golf apparel and accessories with the 2011 U.S. Open logo. The 2011 U.S. Open will be held June 13-19 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.

“We’re excited to offer easier online navigation, high-quality licensed merchandise from well-known golf brands and top-notch customer service,” said Mary Lopuszynski, director of licensing and U.S. Open merchandising for the USGA.

In addition to the new USGA merchandise line, e-commerce development and catalog program, MainGate will handle all fulfillment, marketing and management of USGAshop.com.

  1. I always giggle when I read comments from people complaining that a market is "too saturated" with one thing or another. What does that even mean? If someone is able to open and sustain a new business, whether you think there is room enough for them or not, more power to them. Personally, I love visiting as many of the new local breweries as possible. You do realize that most of these establishments include a dining component and therefore are pretty similar to restaurants, right? When was the last time I heard someone say "You know, I think we have too many locally owned restaurants"? Um, never...

  2. It's good to hear that the festival is continuing to move forward beyond some of the narrow views that seemed to characterize the festival and that I and others had to deal with during our time there.

  3. Corner Bakery announced in March that it had signed agreements to open its first restaurants in Indianapolis by the end of the year. I have not heard anything since but will do some checking.

  4. "The project still is awaiting approval of a waiver filed with the Federal Aviation Administration that would authorize the use of the land for revenue-producing and non-aeronautical purposes." I wonder if the airport will still try to keep from paying taxes on these land tracts, even though they are designated as "non aeronatical?"

  5. How is this frivolous? All they are asking for is medical screenings to test the effects of their exposure. Sounds like the most reasonable lawsuit I've read about in a while. "may not have commited it" which is probably why they're suing to find out the truth. Otherwise they could just ask Walmart, were you negligent? No? OK, thanks for being honest.
