04-02-13-Univ-of-Michigan-Final-Four-sweatshirtGRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Retailers in West Michigan are struggling to meet the demand for to University of Michgian Final Four gear.

A check of MC Sports in Kentwood found them sold out of items. Store manager Kathleen Westrate said she is hoping UPS gets the order to them Tuesday.

At the Campus Den in Woodland Mall, they had a limited number of items and, like MC Sports, they were waiting for a big delivery to come Tuesday.

Online orders are credited with slowing down delivery to retailers, but most stores should have the merchandise by Wednesday morning.

Michigan plays Syracuse Saturday in Atlanta for a spot in Monday’s national title game.
