Braxton, Mahorn to Visit Meijer

The Detroit Shock cannot put an entire Meijer store in The Palace of Auburn Hills, so Wednesday., August 13, they’re going to put a lot of The Palace into a Meijer store - including forward Kara Braxton and assistant coach Rick Mahorn.

Braxton and Mahorn will be meeting fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures at the Meijer store in Madison Heights, located at 1005 E. Thirteen Mile Rd, from approximately 5-6 p.m. Fans can pick up a free autograph card or bring a personal item to be signed. (So if you’re an old-school Pistons fan, feel free to bring some old “Bad Boys” memorabilia for Mahorn.)

Shock mascot Zap and members of the Palace Patrol will be on hand beginning at 4 p.m. to open “Shock Days at Meijer.” Shoppers also can spin the Shock Wheel for the chance to win new Shock merchandise.
