New PrimeTime™ Lockers by Gladiator® GarageWorks Feature Top Colleges; Fans Encouraged to Unlock Their School Pride With Photo Contest
CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwired – Oct 22, 2014) – For thousands of passionate sports fans, getting their own school locker would be a dream come true. Those dreams have now become reality as Gladiator® GarageWorks, a leader in garage and household organization and storage systems, has unveiled PrimeTime™ Lockers. This collection of collegiately licensed lockers includes several colleges including Michigan State University, Notre Dame, Alabama and others.
The six-foot-high welded steel storage locker in school colors showcases the officially licensed logo of your favorite college team — the perfect addition to a garage, game room, den, home gym or anywhere fans want to put team loyalty on display. Other features include a three-digit combination lock for added security and a lifetime limited warranty.
The line of new lockers was officially unveiled at a ceremony near Chicago with Michigan State University Men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo, who earlier in the year became a Gladiator brand advocate when his garage received a Gladiator® GarageWorks makeover.
“Fans have a lot of love and passion for their teams,” said Izzo. “Having their own team locker is a great way to showcase their ultimate pride.”
In fact, Gladiator brand is looking for fans with ultimate pride via a fan photo contest. Sports fans are encouraged to post of photo of themselves in college gameday gear on Twitter using #PrimeTimePride for a chance to win a PrimeTime™ Locker of their favorite school. Fans of the college that posts the most fan photos with that hashtag and their school’s hashtag will have their locker profiled on the Gladiator brand website. More details about the contest are available at www.facebook.com/GladiatorGW.
Each fan photo post will result in a one dollar donation (up to $5,000 total) from Gladiator® GarageWorks to Homes for Our Troops, an organization committed to building specially adapted homes for Service Members nationwide.
