"We've had people from Alaska, Canada, Bermuda," said Karen Varley, the store's owner. "The other night they showed up in a bus."
She is getting a big business boost thanks to the National Soccer Series in the Triangle this weekend. Today - about 6,800 soccer players packed the soccer center in Raleigh for an annual tournament, and they come from everywhere.
"It's a really good opportunity," said Stephanie Bate. "We've been looking forward to it. It's got a great reputation of having so many good college coaches come and recuit."
The NCAA Men's College Cup is also packing thousands into the Triangle. For all the out-of-towners, these tournaments mean spending money in our state.
"We get plane tickets down here," said James Greenslit, a recruiter. "We stay at a hotel...we're staying at the Hilton Garden Inn."
The Capital Area Soccer League estimates this soccer-bonanza will generate more than $2.5 million for the Triangle - with big business for more than 100 hotels. And of course - cash for local businesses.
