LIGHTING UP THE SOUTH SIDE, the NOLAC sign proudly hangs inside the brick and mortar store on E. Carson St.

Jared Zych, the creator of the globally known clothing brand NOLAC, has set his sights on goals higher than ever before. On October 13, NOLAC opened a brick and mortar store of its own.

NOLAC has been selling online all across the country since 2013 and has also made itself into a couple of locally owned stores such as Threads on Carson Street.

Zych’s shop is located in the South Side of Pittsburgh, at 1214 East Carson street.

“I want NOLAC to serve as a staple of motivation and inspiration for the city,” said Zych when asked where he sees his brand in the next five to 10 years.

No One Likes a Camper is not only an acronym but a foundation for the morals and beliefs the people of Pittsburgh stand behind: hard work, integrity, and to never give up on your dreams.

Zych continues to carry this tradition through his works and dedication to NOLAC, but with a new store, he will also pursue the same ambitions as many other local business owners. The shop includes some of the same products from the online store but also features some new items that are store exclusive.

The store opened up at 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon, and business did not stop coming through the door until Zych had to finally close shop at 3 a.m. On the first day of open store hours, NOLAC collected over $10,000 in total revenue.

Zych has high hopes to continue this trend of business by putting in the late hours on the weekends to attract the nighttime crowds of South Side.

We wish Jared the best of luck as he continues into his future endeavours. Make sure to also follow NOLAC on Instagram @nolacnation for updates and new clothing apparel.
