The Kansas City Chiefs football staff are doing last minute preparations to locker rooms and training facilities for the players, but the Arrowhead Merchandise team is getting ready for the fans.

Stuffed bears, cozies, and thousands of hanging Chiefs apparel everything has to be in it's correct place.

"We try to set up sections with kids products and all adult products," says Megan Malek, Manager of retail operations at Arrowhead Stadium. "We box everything up at the stadium. In order to set up here we have to hang everything because it's a lot easier to ship if we box everything up"

With less than 48 hours to stock the tent at the training camp the merchandise team has handled tight deadlines before.

"We are very confident that we are going to get it done," says Malek. "We had a lot of preparation time and we are just working around the clock," she adds.

The St. Joseph training camp t-shirts are one of the more popular items.There will also be Chiefs Joplin shirts available with all proceeds going to Joplin.

The store is set to open Friday at 2:30.
