When I heard that Pavlov’s Togs would be closing up its store on Elmwood I was bummed at first. At the same time, something in the back of my mind told me that we had not seen the last of Tom Rooney’s crazy monster designs and Buffalo-esque merchandise. I’m happy to report that Pavlov’s has teamed up with Hero Design Studio in Allentown… a match made in heaven!
If you think about it, Hero already carries a line of monster and robot products, so it was only natural that the two stores team up. That’s good for monster and robot lovers, but it’s also good for Buffalo lovers since Pavlov’s has been creating a ton of cool city-centric t-shirts, hats, bags, sweatshirts, etc. Allentown is lucky to have a presence from two fun design shops at one location. The move frees up Tom Rooney to get back to his creative endeavors while keeping his products in a brick and mortar. It will also help to bring loyal customers into a shop that they might not have gone into otherwise. Another win-win for Buffalo shoppers.
