CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Maria Angelone and Kendra Pace-Pettis have not had much of a chance to catch their breath today.

They both work at the Carolina Panthers official team store at Bank of America Stadium.

Maria Angelone was able to explain how her day has gone in between customers snatching up anything that had Panthers logo on it. 

"We've been very busy," Angelone said. She added that the holidays were busy but business has picked up after the game.

And that was to be expected after the Panthers edged the Atlanta Falcons 21-20 Sunday earning the Panthers to the NFC South Title.

"Awesome, sorry we had to cheer from the TV but we cheered anyway." said Marlene Pilares, who is the mother of  wide receiver, Kealoha Pilares.

She and the rest of the family are in town from Hawaii and said they had to pay a visit to the team store.

"Supporting our cause buying our Panthers gear hooking our selves up to go back home," she said.

And while the Pilares family might be traveling the farthest, fans from all around have picked up Panthers gear.

"Playoff shirts, lots of stuff," said Pace-Pettis. "I've spent a lot of the day doing lots of restocking."
