The Tom Jurich Maker's Mark bottles officially hit stores in the city this morning, and despite the claims from some rival fans that the bottle wouldn't sell, it appears to be selling so well that some stores are attempting to capitalize on the situation by forcing customers to purchase less popular rivalry merchandise.
Maker's Mark is concerned about this (also concerned about the mark-up), and would like you to alert them if you happen to come upon any stores pulling similar shenanigans.
Aside from that, the day seems to be going swimmingly.
