'If he goes, he goes': Packers apparel shop may heavily discount Rodgers merch if he leaves Green Bay
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- All eyes were on Aaron Rodgers Wednesday afternoon as he announced his intention to leave Green Bay and head over to the New York Jets.
While Packers fans had mixed reactions to the news, some inside of the Green and Gold Zone in West Allis said this means a new era for the team.
“You never want to hear your spouse say they wish they intend to be with another person," said owner Andrew Hundt. "We love our team, we love our quarterback, we hope he stays, but if he goes, he goes."
See all this @AaronRodgers12 merch at the Green and Gold Zone in West Allis? It’s 50% off (+ more sales!) as soon as Rodgers is confirmed to leave @packers and play for the @nyjets.

Right now, the store still has plenty of Rodgers merchandise, including jerseys, shirts, lanyards, pictures, bobbleheads, and more.
But once the news is confirmed, Hundt said it'll all be heavily discounted, starting at 50%.
“As a Packer fan, things change just like anything else. If Rodgers decides to go, it’s time for Jordan Love to come on," said lifelong supporter Jerry LeSage.
Speaking of Love, the store has ordered his merch, which is supposed to come within the next few months.
Hundt added that customer inquiry into Love has skyrocketed, while interest in Rodgers has declined over the last year.
