Short North Retailer Pursuit Will Outfit USA Men’s Curling Team for 2018 Winter Olympics
A local retailer will get some representation in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Pursuit, the Short North menswear store, has announced a partnership with Minnesota-based Team Shuster, who’ll represent the United States this year in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
“Pursuit has become a place people trust for the suits they’ll wear for the milestone moments in life, and telling the stories of those amazing moments is what makes our work so rewarding,” Pursuit stated in a release. “The Olympics are such a perfect example. Team Shuster has been working for decades to become the best in the world, and the opportunity to be on the largest stage only comes once every four years. The amount of passion and energy that has gone into preparing for Pyeongchang is inspiring, and we’re cheering for them to bring home a gold medal.”
John Shuster, Team Shuster’s namesake, was a member of the 2006 Bronze Medal-winning team and will have his fourth consecutive appearance at the Winter Olympics this year. Pursuit representatives recently visited the team in Duluth, Minnesota, and will provide the suits, dress shirts, and accessories for the team to wear before and after the games.
Pursuit’s work with Team Shuster is part of their “In Pursuit” program, which according to a press release “has included outfitting local musicians for monthly concerts in their Short North store and partnering with local Major League Soccer team, Columbus Crew SC to be the ‘Official Matchday Suit Partner’ of the club.”
