Fifty Seven CLC Partner Institutions to be Featured in Costco’s 2014 Holiday Collegiate Program

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

ATLANTA, Ga. – Costco, the nation’s largest wholesale club retailer, is rolling out a Holiday Collegiate program that will feature 57 of the Collegiate Licensing Company’s (CLC) partner institutions.
 
The 57 institutions will be featured across most club stores through the month of December. The program’s feature product, a Knight’s Apparel soft-shell jacket, will be sold exclusively at Costco.
 
“This program is a real coup for the collegiate business as real estate is precious during this sales period,” said Donnie Hodge, President of Knights Apparel.
 
In addition, there will be other college products featured during the month of December, through the CAMPUS DRIVE Holiday program. This program includes product for 74 CLC partner institutions that will be placed regionally among most club stores. Items in the program include a line of unisex men’s athletic fleece styles and a track jacket.
 
These holiday programs come on the heels of a successful back-to-school campaign at Costco that featured numerous CLC partner institutions across hundreds of club stores.
