Opening Thanksgiving Day at 6pm, the museum’s pop-up shop at The Outlets of the Bluegrass will treat shoppers to a range of gift options including personalized bats, a fan-favorite at the Museum Store in downtown Louisville. To make things even more jolly, a free museum pass is included with each personalized bat purchase. Other items for sale at The Outlet Shoppes store include mini-bats, branded apparel, as well as great stocking stuffers like chocolates, ornaments, hats and much more.

Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory’s All-Star Experience ticket packages will also be available at the store for a discounted price! The All-Star Experience is an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour with extra-special added touches to customize it for every guest. At the conclusion of the All-Star Experience, guests even receive their very own personalized bat.

Shoppers are also invited to watch live bat-making demonstrations as a craftsperson uses a hand-turning lathe to showcase the “old-fashioned” way of making a baseball bat by hand. With wood chips flying, the demonstration is a spectacle to see and a showcase that is sure to delight holiday shoppers.

“We couldn’t be merrier to provide our museum store experience at The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass,” said Ben Settles, Sales Director of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “With this location we’ll be able to treat people to our unique products who may not be planning to make the trip downtown before the holidays.”

The pop-up shop will be located on the east side of The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass, between North Face and Saks Fifth Avenue. Below are the hours the pop-up shop will be open:
