Welcome to Positively Pittsburgh!

Our Mission

We are an online business with a passion for sharing what makes Pittsburgh Pittsburgh. Locally owned and operated, we strive to cultivate an appreciation, understanding, and joy for all that Pittsburgh has to offer through our products, written content, and local sponsors. Our talented writers, editors, and staff create content to entertain and inform a Pittsburgh nation (and visitors!).

The Positively Pittsburgh shop offers a wide range of souvenir items available to online retail customers within the continental United States. In addition to regular stock items, we offer custom made items such as glassware, coasters and koozies, key chains, tote bags, and more (in larger quantities).  Positively Pittsburgh also serves as a distributor, primed to fulfill local wholesale orders, and ready to accept new retailers today. Our goal is to provide efficient and friendly customer service to all.

Owner: Tom Pollard

Tom Pollard is the entrepreneur behind Positively Pittsburgh. He is a native Pittsburgher and small businessman who has spent many years promoting our city through the sale of Pittsburgh souvenirs and memorabilia, as well as through his commercial photography. (Yes, most of the Pittsburgh shots we have are Tom Pollard originals). Starting out over 30 years ago selling magnets, Positively Pittsburgh has grown to include a variety of items such as keychains, mugs, puzzles, and MORE!

He loves Pittsburgh and wants to help bring these beautiful and fun souvenirs to others who enjoy the city no matter where they are located!
