The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.
The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.
The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.
The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

In his book, "Run To Daylight," Vince Lombardi called Forrest Gregg "the finest player I ever coached."
Certainly he was the most durable. A second-round draft pick out of Southern Methodist in 1956, Gregg played 187 consecutive games over his 14 seasons with the team, which stood as the Green Bay Packers' all-time record until Brett Favre eclipsed the mark in 2003.
Considered undersized at his tackle position at 6-foot-4, 249 pounds, Gregg overcame his lack of bulk with his athleticism and determination.
Member to all five of Lombardi's championship teams, Gregg was an integral part of the running attack that averaged 151.3 yards per game and 2,051 yards a season during the Lombardi years.
Primarily a right tackle, Gregg also saw time at left guard. He was voted to nine Pro Bowls (1959-64, 1966-68) and earned Associate Press All-Pro recognition eight times including four consensus selections (1962-64 and '66).
During his Packers career, Gregg wore jersey number 75. He finished his playing career with the Dallas Cowboys (1971).
A true student of the game, Gregg then entered coaching, earning head coaching stints with the Cleveland Browns (1975-77) and Cincinnati Bengals (1980-83) before returning to Green Bay to lead the Packers from 1984-87 (25-37-1, .405).
The ninth head coach in Packers history, Gregg replaced former teammate Bart Starr.
In 1994, Gregg was voted to the NFL's 75th Anniversary Team.
Alvis Forrest Gregg was born October 18, 1933, in Birthright, Texas.
