Attention Jackson State and Tennessee State fans looking forward to the Southern Heritage Classic this weekend: Nike wants you to just spend it – and they’re offering a special promotion to help.

From Sept. 6-10, the Nike Store in Frayser is offering a special 40 percent discount to JSU & TSU alums – but there’s catch: You have to “pre-register” for the sale, and you’ll need to verify your identity on your chosen day to go. (Translation: Yes, you will be carded.)

“It’s a huge weekend for football and we just wanted to bring some awareness,” said Ekina Brown, a Nike marketing rep. “People know about the employee store. So we’d just like to extend that benefit to them as well.”


For the record, Brown said the link is open to all . . . but there are limited spaces, so you’d better act fast . . .
