Need Nalia? was founded in 2013 by the Late Takeya E. Taylor. Takeya's vision for Need Nalia? was to provide quality Custom Woodwork for D9 organizations. Takeya created the Need Nalia? logo, that is still used today, to begin marketing the business. She began creating Custom woodwork pieces for her friends and began to acquire new customers. In 2014, Takeya unexpectedly passed away. Upon her passing her parents wanted to continue trying to build Need Nalia? and asked her sister, Tivona Taylor Vogt, to try and take up the business. Tivona, who was working in Law Enforcement at the time, was reluctant to try and keep Need Nalia? alive. After some thought and strong urging from her parents, Tivona began creating the same type of custom woodwork that Takeya started. People quickly began to order woodwork and then began to request things like T-Shirts and glassware. Need Nalia? began to grow rapidly. In 2016, after converting an upstairs bedroom and garage into work spaces, Tivona decided to take a leap of faith and leave her full time job and pursue Need Nalia? full time.
On October 17, 2017, Need Nalia? opened a Store Front location in Columbia, SC. Need Nalia? quickly became one of the leading Greek Paraphernalia stores in Columbia, SC. After 18 months, the owners of the building that housed Need Nalia? decided to sell the building. All tenants were given only 30 days to vacate the premises. We immediately began searching for a new space for Need Nalia? Thankfully, we were able to secure a bigger space with more visibility just 2 miles from the current location. On August 1, 2019 Need Nalia? opened the doors to their current location, 9557 Two Notch Road Suite F Columbia, SC 29223. Need Nalia? expanded the business by partnering with new wholesale companies, offering new products, new services, and acquiring licenses to sell D9 paraphernalia.
To date, Need Nalia? has a staff of four, is ranked the #1 Greek Paraphernalia store in Columbia, SC by Google and we are Columbia, South Carolina's Only Licensed Greek Paraphernalia store!
