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.

Joining Herb Adderley, Willie Davis, Ray Nitschke and Willie Wood, Henry Jordan became the fifth Packers defensive player from the Vince Lombardi era to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame (1995).
Jordan started his career with the Cleveland Browns as a fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Virginia, and, like Nitschke and Davis, came to the Packers via trade.
In 1959, Lombardi sent a fourth-round pick to the Browns to acquire Jordan in one of his first moves as general manager and head coach.
Standing 6-foot-2 and weighing 248 pounds, Jordan wasn't necessarily a physically intimidating defensive tackle. However, the former collegiate wrestler, who earned runner-up status in the heavyweight class of the 1957 NCAA Championships, used his speed, strength and determination to be a menace in the trenches.
If he was undersized for his position, it didn't hurt his durability. In his 11 years with the team, Jordan played 139 games. In that span, the Packers won five NFL championships and two Super Bowls.
Over Jordan's career, the Packers defense allowed only 15.4 points per game in the regular season, including just 10.5 points per game in 1962 and 11.6 points a game in 1966.
Official tackling statistics aren't available from that era, but Jordan is credited with making six tackles in Super Bowl I (Jan. 15, 1967), second to only Lee Roy Caffey (7).
In 1967, Jordan picked up 3.5 sacks of quarterback Roman Gabriel in a 28-7 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in the Western Conference championship.
Jordan earned Associated Press All-Pro honors six times (1960-64, 1966) in his career, including consensus recognition in 1961 and 1963. He was named to the Pro Bowl four times (1960-63, '66) and in 1962 was named the all-star game's Outstanding Lineman.
In addition to his on-field exploits, Jordan is remembered for being one of the Packers' most quotable players, especially in regard to Lombardi, for whom he had great respect.
Of his head coach, Jordan is credited with quipping, "He treats us all alike -- like dogs," and "When (Lombardi) says, 'Sit down,' I don't look for a chair."
Jordan wore jersey number 74 during his Packers career.
Henry Wendell Jordan, born January 26, 1935, in Emporia, Va., died February 21, 1977, at the age of 42.
