SOUTH BEND – Notre Dame's undefeated season and national title hopes mean a new national spotlight is being shined on South Bend. Economically, this football season has been a great one for the South Bend area.
Local hotels, restaurants and stores have all reaped the benefits. In fact, the Irish's incredible season has even caused a new store to open.
It hasn't even been a week since Irish Fever opened, and merchandise is already selling out.
"Three or four different shirts have already sold out and we've had to reorder; glassware was very, very popular," said store manager Don Mensen.
