4 Best Places in Athens to Get Your Dawg Gear

It’s a new school year and time to show your Dawg pride. If you're new to the University of Georgia, or just want some new swag or tags to wear around campus and to the game, read on for UNCOMMON’s best places to pick up Dawg gear around Athens. 

University of Georgia Bookstore 

The original Dawgs gear spot, the UGA Bookstore is still one of the most popular places to pick up a T-shirt or cap. You can buy online, but it’s more fun to shop in person, plus you probably need to get other stuff there anyway, and you can use your campus card to pay. Sign up for their emails and get 10% off (online and in person).  

The Red Zone

The Red Zone on East Clayton Street gets great student reviews for selection and price. Already have enough sweatshirts, bags, and caps? How about some socks, beach towels, or posters to decorate your UNCOMMON apartment? You can find everything you want here and more. Bonus – it’s just three blocks away and on the way to campus. 

University Spirit

University Spirit is a family owned store started by UGA alumni that has been around since 1975. They are known for a great, welcoming staff and a good selection of Dawg gear, plus Greek gifts and apparel. The main shop is on Baxter Street, but they also own The Clubhouse, another UGA swag shop on College Ave just a few blocks away. 


B-Unlimited is a chain that specializes in selling T-shirts at large schools throughout the Southeast. You may be put off by the fact that they are selling shirts to the enemy (Bamma, Auburn, etc.), but the truth is, they have some cool, unique tees. Besides, we kicked their butts last year and we’ll do it again!

So shop around. Find your style. The most important thing is to be true to your school. Go DAWGS! For more fun stuff around UGA campus and Athens, check out the UNCOMMON blog.
