Introducing Riverview's’ new school store: The View! This shop offers Riverview merchandise favorites such as hoodies, hats, and T-shirts.
Located off the gymnasium in the old ticket house, students can come in and purchase items during home basketball and volleyball games, other special events, and all Thursdays before and after school. If you cannot make it to the store, you can always order online at www.rhsactivities.com/shop. Online orders are picked up in the shop.
Pricing? Prices range from $15-$30. The most popular items include hoodies, sweatpants, and hats. Hoodies are $25, and hats and sweats are $20 each. The best part? All profits contribute to student welfare at RHS.
Justin Martin, who teaches various sciences here at Riverview, is a part of this shop's operation. When asked why the shop is not open during lacrosse and baseball games, he says “With the store being located in the front lobby of the gym it's hard to redirect people through or around the building to reach the lobby. We are looking at some options to bring the store to these fields during each game in the future, though!”.
Does popular merchandise stay in stock regularly? How do they keep up with demand? Martin says “We keep our Riverview hoodies and Logo sweat pants in stock all year because of how popular they are. This also means that, yes, we do run out of sizes pretty quickly – but we always re-order as soon as possible!”. He also adds that you can always put an email request for the desired size at the activities website.
