CHICAGO -- Sports Authority had sold out all of its Blackhawks Stanley Cup Championship merchandise almost as soon as the doors opened at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

New shipments are expected but have been delayed by inclement weather.

Customers rushed in as soon as the store in the River North neighborhood opened.

That's after it stayed open late until one in the morning.

The official locker room shirt and hats are the most popular items.

"Some storms last night impacted some deliveries," said store manager Matt Doberstein. "We've done this in 2010, and 2013, so we know what to expect. Its a fun time for all of us."

Coca-Cola is also getting in on the action with commemorative Stanley Cup championship six packs.
