For those of you who missed out on HEB’s very limited edition Selena bags early March, you have your chance to get your hands on more Selena limited edition things. In early March, selected HEBs in the surrounding area received a limited amount of special edition Selena bags. Fans of the late Queen of Tejano lined up eagerly in lines that wrapped around the HEB stores to try to score a bag. Although there was a limit to two per customer, the bags sold out in minutes. Fans also had the chance to try to purchase some online at HEB’s website at 10AM that day, this caused the HEB website to crash and resulted in many fans – including me – to fail in purchasing the $2 tote bags. A portion of the tote bag proceeds went to The Selena Foundation. After many fans we left out of the opportunity of being able to buy the bags, people who did went on eBay and like selling websites to sell theirs, raising the prices ridiculously. The ridiculous people trying to make profit on fans raised prices to over $100.
This Saturday, though, fans will be given another chance to get their hands on something. On Saturday, April 7th at 9AM, Stripes stores across Texas and Louisiana will sell two versions of limited edition cups with the Queen on them. The Stripes stores have been anticipating the turnout of fans, saying that fans will be allowed to start lining up at 8AM Saturday morning and have limited four cups per person to try to give a fair chance to every fan waiting. The cups will be priced at $2.99 per cup. Like the sell of the tote bags, a portion of the sell of the cups will go to The Selena Foundation. Good luck to those who turn out Saturday morning to try to get the cups!
