The Chicago Blackhawks won their first Stanley Cup just two years before Abt opened its doors on Milwaukee Avenue. Since then, the ‘Hawks have earned their place as one of the most loved organizations in a city full of icons (and we like to think we’re somewhere up there too). Tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks battle the Boston Bruins, in Game 1 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals. This Original Six showdown is sure to be an exciting one, and we decided to show loyalty to our hometown heroes by dressing in Blackhawks attire at work today. Everywhere you looked—on the salesfloor, in the warehouse, in the customer service department—there was Black and Red. So we’d like to give a shout out to the Blackhawks, we’ll be watching as you beat down the Bruins and send ’em back to Beantown.
