A little aside… I got my order from Arsenal.com’s official store today. As you can see, I loaded my ‘birthday order’ with all sorts of official merchandise in anticipation for the upcoming season.
I must give credit to their official store for a great turn around time. Order was processed July 30, order arrived at my door Aug 12; 10 business days. Not bad for a customized kit and overseas shipping. If you’re a Canadian Gunner, the shipping is a tad expensive but the quality of materials and delivery time from the official online store is pretty good (two positive experiences to date).
Other alternatives include Subside Sports and Worldsoccershop. Both have been good, particularly the former. Customized, authentic merchandise can be tough to find locally in Canada, so I thought I’d share some options with everyone.
