Mayor Sarno joined with MGM Springfield for Reopening of Iconic Indian Motorcycle Retail Shop

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno joined today with MGM Springfield President and COO Chris Kelley to announce the reopening of the iconic Indian Motorcycle retail shop. Springfield Thunderbirds Managing Partner Paul Picknelly and T-Birds President Nate Costa also joined along with State Representatives Carlos Gonzalez, Orlando Ramos, and Brian Ashe.

Mayor Sarno states, “I continue to hear comments about the sense of vibrancy making its way back to our downtown. Efforts and partnerships like this are a big part of that. I want to thank MGM Springfield President and COO Chris Kelley and his team for their continued investment and commitment to our Springfield.  The reopening of the iconic Indian Motorcycle retail shop is yet another step for MGM Springfield as they continue to reopen all aspects at their facility, including expanding their retail operations to include merchandise for our beloved Springfield Thunderbirds, which MGM Springfield has been a wonderful community partner.” 

The reopening of the Indian Motorcycle shop continues to show MGM Springfield’s commitment and promise of reopening their facility and the various venues and amenities.  This announcement is the result of a previous meeting between Mayor Sarno, City Councilor Attorney Michael Fenton who is the Chair of the City Council’s Casino Oversight Committee, MGM Resorts CEO William Hornbuckle and MGM Springfield President and COO Chris Kelley about the establishment continuing the transition of reopening post-pandemic. 

Besides offering Indian Motorcycle merchandise and apparel, the retail shop will also offer MGM merchandise along with goods, apparel, and merchandise for the Springfield Thunderbirds.  Residents and hockey fans can purchase their T-Birds merchandise before and after they attend the game at the MassMutual Center.
