Brewers aim to drop merchandise prices after taking over team stores

The Milwaukee Brewers have taken control of their team stores at Miller Park, in a move the MLB team believe will lead to lower prices and better selection.

The club assumed operation of the three stores from Delaware North, who will remain the stadium’s concessionaire.

The absence of a middleman will help the Brewers lower costs, said chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger. “It’s a growing trend in our industry for teams to be taking over retail,” he added.
