Released: 02/04/2010

Five Walgreens Drug Stores in Alexandria, Pineville and Marksville are selling LSU Alexandria merchandise, announced David Wesse, vice chancellor for finance and administrative services. “It’s the first off-campus offering of licensed LSUA items,” said Wesse, “and we’re very pleased to have this partnership with Walgreens.”

Lance Young, community store manager for Walgreens, said each of the stores carries LSUA T-shirts, ladies fitted T-shirts, caps and hooded sweatshirts. “The Generals baseball and softball teams have generated interest with the opening of the new fields at LSUA as has the 50th anniversary celebration of the school. We’re happy to support the university by selling its merchandise.”

Wesse said other retail outlets are being approached about offering LSUA apparel.
