About Us, The Post and Nickel

The Original Post & Nickel 


The Post & Nickel first opened as a men’s clothing store called the Hitchin’ Post in 1966 and was so successful that just two years later, the owners opened The Wooden Nickel, which offered women’s clothing.

Over half a century, the Store became a beloved Nebraska establishment, growing into one of Lincoln’s most respected local retailers. Before its retail closing in 2018, the family-owned business provided high-quality clothing and shoes to Lincoln’s residents and visitors for 52 years. Many Nebraska residents still reminisce about purchasing their first designer bell bottoms or sophomore prom dress there.

The Store, as of right now, is still selling clothing. However, it is different from what it was before. Now we are entirely online and selling Post and Nickel Apparel, And some antiques from the Store as supplies last. 

The physical Post & Nickel store is not the same as it was before. The building is still there, and the Post & Nickel is now revamped into the Post Lofts. The Post Lofts honor and incorporate the nostalgia of the building’s past, highlighting its beautiful architecture while making way for a bright future.
