By  | 

Signs of construction can be seen all over town, and that includes a new Aggieland Outfitters that is being built next to the existing store on University Drive.

The store is being built on property acquired over the past few years and the new building with expand the Aggieland Outfitters store from 2,000 to 8,000 square feet.

All other Aggieland Outfitters stores will remain open, but thanks to success of the A&M football program the store felt it was time to expand.

"When they bought this property on University Drive, the long term plan was always to build a larger store. With the success of the football team last year, that really helped us make sure we got that done in 2012 so we're excited to open up in the fall," said Aggieland Outfitters Marketing Director Dallas Shipp.

The store is expected to be open in time for Texas A&M's first home football game of the season.
