CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

President Obama and the first family have just been reelected for another four years and already by the morning light, his supporters were scooping up all things Obama at the My Chicago store on South Michigan Avenue.

The store prides itself on being "The Obama store" in Chicago, selling everything from shirts, and hats to cups and pens.

A few very excited customers have already got their hands on some merchandise.

"I am feeling fantastic. Go Obama! I just bought my Obama shirt," says one enthusiastic shopper, Kristin.

Even out-of-towners from Seattle and Canada have come into the store to snag some swag.

With January's inauguration right around the corner, retail stores aren't the only businesses getting busy--the phones have already started ringing early at Chicago's Alien Travel.

"This is the second term and people are very excited to go," says Travel Agent Mohammed Naez.

Whether you have your President Obama clothing and tickets to Washington purchased or not, the 44th President of the United States will be sworn in for a second term on January 21st 2013.
