theROARstore is a student ran store that allows 11th and 12th grade students to experience what it is like to run and operate a small business. While taking part in this great opportunity, students will decide when the store will be open and also what type of merchandise will be in stock. theROARstore was first started in 2014 by students and all we had was a kiosk. As the store grew we had more students wanting to take part in the success. Two short years later the store has a designated location right by the 11/12 offices that officially opened up in the fall of 2016.

First quarter was a major success thanks to everyone who stopped in. We put a wide variety of inventory on the shelves and completed all of our class and store goals. This year was our first year opening up at the stadium, which was a huge step in our business! We also opened up during a majority of the volleyball games at the high school which was another great experience. We plan to stay open for all sporting events at the high school and stadium in the future. Throughout this year, the future quarter classes will keep these new standards high and continue to sell the best Linn-Mar apparel. Thank you for supporting theROARstore.
Stop in theROARstore today and tomorrow to pick up your 2017 homecoming apparel. We will be open from 8:00am-4:00pm both days (enter through Door 10 if coming after school). While you’re in the store, take a look at some of our new spirit items (eye black, face paint, headbands, wristbands, AND MORE) all for under $5! We will also be open at the stadium on Friday (Oct. 6th) to hand out Homecoming apparel. We still highly recommend you pick up the shirts at the high school before Friday night’s game to avoid crowds! If you ordered your homecoming apparel at the middle schools, you can pick them up there as well! Come out and show your Lion spirit! 🐾🦁🏈
Coming this fall, theROARstore will be releasing new merchandise! Within the next few weeks, we will have new crew sweatshirts, hoodies, full=zips, ¼ zip jackets, hats, hair bows, and much more. Our current store hours for our high school location are from 8am to 4pm, Wednesday through Friday (closed during lunch). Our stadium store is also in full swing on Friday nights, during home (Soph/Varsity) games, from 5:30 to just after half-time of the Varsity game. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to get regular updates, and watch for information later this week about Homecoming apparel!
This fall, theROARstore will build upon its successful opening of their brick-and mortar store (last fall), take over operations of the former Booster Club location at Linn-Mar Stadium. This has been in the works for a couple of years, so it didn't catch either of the parties off-guard, but it does signal the end of merchandise sales by the Booster Club, after registration. theROARstore will become the sole (non-club) provider of merchandise for the district.
Students enrolled in the class (associated with the operations of) theROARstore will be managing the Stadium Store, along with the brick-and-mortar store. Currently, the plan is to open the Stadium Store at halftime of the Sophomore game, and will close following the Varsity haltime. Some products sold at the stadium will be exclusive to the Stadium Store and vice versa (there is not nearly enough room to have every item from the store at the stadium). Cash and Credit Cards will be accepted at the Stadium; returns will only be done at the brick-and-mortar store.
The store has a fresh, clean layout, thanks to the new purchases that students recently made. Wall hooks have been placed on vertical columns, making it easier to look through clearance products and find something that sparks interest, at a great, low price. Nesting tables now sit up front, and greet new customers as they enter. T-shirt frames now highlight available styles, which are now centrally located. And other new display fixtures have been added to enhance the overall look and professionalism of the store. Stop in and see for yourself, we hope you love the new look of the store!
The second quarter of theROARstore was a success, thanks to everyone who contributed to help make our store successful. Upcoming in the third quarter theROARstore will be featuring some new items along with new store hours. Our third quarter hours will be Tuesdays 8-4 pm, Thursdays 8-4 pm, and Fridays 8-4 pm. We have a few new featured items like our new Star Wars T-shirts, new crew neck sweatshirts, and also some new socks. We hope to see you soon!
As a holiday promotion, the students currently running theROARstore decided to have their first ever (RED and) Black Friday two-day sale. On December 9th and 10th, the students extended their hours to allow more adults to come to shop for the holidays. Prices were marked down so that customers received 10% of their entire purchase. theROARstore opened their doors on Saturday morning, at the same time the Booster Club had their annual Holiday sales, hoping to piggy-back on their foot traffic.
