Local business named official RNC vendor

Local business named official RNC vendor

LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) - An official list of vendors has been released with a little more than a month until the Republic National Convention.

About two dozen local and national companies made the cut, including GV Art + Design in Lakewood. Owner George Vlosich is thrilled. He loves his city so much he displays it on T-shirts.

"It's such a big event. And it's coming to Cleveland. And it's highlighting Cleveland and what it has to offer," he said.

All eyes will be on the city next month when more than 50,000 people are expected to visit for the convention. Vlosich and his family will be there with their T-shirts and artwork, but they're not taking any sides.

"We're not Republican or Democrat," said Vlosich.

GV Art + Design says it's all about hometown pride and bridging the gaps -- that's why regulars believe it's the perfect company to represent what Cleveland is all about.

The patriotic collection launches right after the NBA Finals.

The RNC will be held July 18-22 here in Cleveland.
