LEWISTOWN - Purple lives at MCHuskies.com, according to the website's slogan.
The site and its companion store are up and running, owners Mike and Polly Morrison and Todd Cubbison said. Created mainly as an e-commerce business, shoppers can purchase apparel and accessories in various Huskies-themed designs.
Cubbison, the designer of the original Huskies logo, said he keeps coming up with new designs and logos but had nowhere to sell the products. He teamed up with the Morrisons, who own Five Points Screen Printing, to offer options to area students, families and schools.

Some of the apparel and accessories available at MCHuskies.com is displayed at the MCHuskies.com store at 26 Valley St. in Lewistown.
"It was just a good partnership between Polly and I and Todd. We've been friends for years," Mike said.
The store carries Huskies T-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, hair bows, hats, headbands, jerseys, socks and more. MCHuskies.com's selection also includes women's and children's clothing. Currently, the designs represent all of the Huskies scholastic teams, but Cubbison and the Morrisons intend to include other athletic groups as well. Right now, the Burnham Bulldogs and Silks Athletics are represented.
