The why behind Big Red Palmetto Store

Albert Buscaino ·
“I wear the ring”..Those immortal words written by Pat Conroy are recognized by Citadel Graduates worldwide. I am a 1975 graduate, and a couple of years ago realized that there was a need for customized merchandise for grads, parents, and Cadets that was not available through the usual channels. That is why I started this store..A place where custom items could be found, and where Class and Company meant something..Not just generic “The Citadel” items. We are always on the lookout for new items, new designs, new ideas that people want to purchase to express their connection to the school. Feel free to look around the will find items that pertain to all Classes as well as Cadet Company's..all are customized to your specific needs. You can always email me at with suggestions and ideas..I have tried to make sure that I present quality merchandise, and endeavor to use US suppliers. A portion of every sale of Big Red merchandise goes back to the school for the upkeep and preservation of our spirit flag, Big Red. Whether you are an “Old Corps” guy, or a recent grad, there is something here just for you. Thank you, and Go Dogs !
