Following the best year yet, the Wharf Rat Rally now has its first online store open and running. “It’s hard to gauge how much merchandise is needed and even with the rainy weather, we sold out of some of our t-shirt designs and our hoodies on Saturday. Offering them again, online, is a natural extension of the terrific year we had,” said Laura Simmons, of the expansion. Within Digby, two local businesses have agreed to carry the official Wharf Rat Rally souvenirs: The Shoe Box, and Marshall’s Gifts. JR Signs in Conway also has stock available. Simmons goes on to say, “We’ve received a lot of phone calls and emails from people who couldn’t make it to Digby during the Rally this year or who arrived after some of the shelves were empty, so with the combination of supporting businesses and the online option, we’re hoping to reach everyone. We’ll also have limited stock with us at the motorcycle shows over the winter.”
The store selection includes limited sizes of on-hand stock as well as the opportunity to order the designs that sold out early. The postage fees are calculated by the Canada Post web service and are a separate line on the order. As in the Wharf Rat Rally locations during the Rally, the government taxes are included in the merchandise prices. Rockers, patches and stickers are also available online, with shipping included in the price for these smaller items.
The organizing committee has started the online store in preparation of the 10th Annual Wharf Rat Rally being held from August 27th to 31st next year.
