#ThrowbackThursday Fun Fact: The Great Nics-by

#ThrowbackThursday Fun Fact: The Great Nics-by

As some of our loyal customers may already know, Nic Gavalas opened Nic’s Toggery in 1950 at our Monroe Street location. Nic was born into this business; his father was a master tailor and made clothing for a living. Sixty-four years later, Nic’s Toggery’s outstanding dedication to style & fit is still being upheld by Nic’s sons and grandsons. However, when Nic’s Toggery first became seeded in the soil of Tallahassee, Nic needed to find a way to expose his fresh, new store brand. Nic became known for throwing big, fun parties for all the students in Tallahassee. These parties would be packed, and often included a DJ with lots of shopping in the 1970s. These parties became a hit, and the Nic’s Toggery was able to take off and thrive partly due to their success with college students.
