To say 2018 was a big year for Pursuit Founder Nate DeMars is really an understatement. Expansions and historic partnerships marked a calendar year full of accomplishments.
Pursuit started the year on the global stage with a partnership to outfit the USA Men’s Curling Team for the 2018 Winter Olympics. DeMars and his team also helped to outfit another high-profile group of athletes as the ‘Official Matchday Suit Partner’ of the Columbus Crew SC.
Fall brought the retailer’s expansion to Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, while Pursuit closed out the year being voted the Top Fashion & Apparel Store in the city by Columbus Underground readers for the second year in a row.
