Lightsleepers Mc is located at the corner of McCully and S. King streets.

Holiday shoppers looking to support local businesses and pick up unique gifts can head to the corner of McCully and South King streets, where Lightsleepers Mc opened in the former in4mation storefront last month.

Owner Kavet “Kavet the Catalyst” Omo has previous retail experience as part owner of Prototype in the early 2000’s. Lightsleepers sold T-shirts out of that store until Omo left the company, after which he moved onto selling via his own online storefront and later at outdoor shopping event Honolulu Night Market.

“You gotta be about it. There’s no half-stepping in any game, especially this clothing game,” said Omo, 39. “Night Market really helped push us out there. We were already selling in in4mation, but Night Market was great exposure.”

It was that relationship with in4mation that led to the new Lightsleepers brick-and-mortar. At first, Omo was told a new in4mation store was opening at Ala Moana and that his brand would be one of those picked up at the new location. A few weeks later, he was approached with an opportunity to take over the old McCully location.

“I’m learning a lot about having a physical shop and the amount of product you need,” Omo said. “We’ve kinda just forged our own path.

“Mono does its thing with the high-end accessories, and Truest is all about the shoes. And then Mojo Barbershop is going to open next door and we got About the Goods right down the street. McCully fits Lightsleepers perfectly.”
