The doors to the Vegas Golden Knights retail store located at the T-Mobile Arena opened Wednesday at noon.

The first item of business was restocking after Tuesday night's big reveal.

Fans from near and far couldn't wait to get their hands on some Golden Knights swag.

Some fans came all the way from Canada ready to jump on board Team Golden Knights.

"So we are looking to switch teams," said two converted fans.

David Bertschy is a self-proclaimed impulsive buyer. He was at the store buying some early Christmas gifts presents to represent Las Vegas.

"My wife, she told me not to stop by here, but shhhhh here I am," Bertschy said. 

The NHL's traditional hats have already sold out, so they said they have already placed an order. 

Team officials said team jerseys will be available to order after the first of the year and they don't expect to receive them until the summer of 2017.
