SCF Launches Sales Outlets for Logo Gear
(Bradenton, Fla., February 23, 2011) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) Manatees fans now have more places to buy personalized gear with the trademarked SCF College logo and the Manatees mascot logo. The SCF Store at the Bradenton and Venice campuses and a new online store, GoManatees.com, feature expanded merchandise including clothing for men, women, children and babies; and home supplies, bags, clocks, wallets, pet supplies and auto accessories.
“The success of our athletic teams has helped the SCF Manatees brand grow in popularity around the country,” said SCF President Dr. Lars A. Hafner. “When our state champion baseball team played in the national tournament last year, we had callers from as far away as Maryland asking for shirts with the Manatees logo. The new GoManatees.com website answers those requests.”
Local shoppers also may visit The SCF Store at SCF Bradenton and SCF Venice. Formerly called The SCF Bookstore and Shop, the store still carries textbooks and classroom supplies in addition to an expanded selection of merchandise including Tervis Tumblers. New items are added regularly and soon will include exciting tee-shirt designs from Team Edition and a custom-made plush manatee dressed in an SCF team uniform.
The College logos are trademarked and marketed through a licensing agreement with Strategic Marketing Affiliates Inc.
