(FENWICK ISLAND, Del.) - The Fenwick Island Hardware Store

has its own NFL shop, where things have been busy since the Philadelphia Eagles advanced to the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

"Monday morning. It just took off," says Mike Wright, a store assistant manager.

Here people can buy Eagles anything; like sweaters, purses, wallets, baby onesies, knives, and more.

"Tablecloths, plates, napkins, forks," Wright added.

The shop sells other gear from other teams as well. But the store says the Eagles Super Bowl run has brought business back to life.

"Before... because of the NFL, with the kneeling that slowed our business down. Now with the Eagles winning the Championship, has taken us to a new height,"

In Lewes, Tom Jones, owner of Irish eyes, will be headed to Minnesota next week to cheer on the birds live and in person.

"I'm a season ticket holder for the last 40 to 50 years. The Eagles have been waiting for this for a long time, so when I got offered the ticket, it was a no-brainer," said Jones

From Lewes to here in Fenwick Island and beyond, Eagles fever is spreading all over Delmarva, and there's only one prediction for next week's big game.

"The people around here though the Eagles weren't gonna take it, and now they've taken it. They're going to Super Bowl and gonna win that too," said Wright.

The Fenwick Hardware Store will have Eagles NFC champion gear as soon as Saturday and next week.
