Welcome to Glik’s!
We’re so pleased that you’ve allowed us to serve your family since 1897. Whether you’ve shopped with us since your OshKosh B’Gosh days or just recently discovered that we carry your favorite fashions in your hometown (or online) we’d like to welcome you to our store.
Inside you’ll find brands and styles specifically chosen for your community. This also means you’ll never find 2 Glik’s stores that are exactly the same. We know you trust us to make you look good, which is why we follow the latest fashion trends and fill our 60+ stores with new fashion arrivals almost daily. From flattering denim styles, on-trend tops, the latest shoes & charming accessories, we’re confident you’ll find something special and unique to add to your wardrobe on every visit.
Since 1897, our family has proudly grown a family business that has withstood the test of time, currently ranking as the 14th oldest retailer in the United States. Glik family members are involved in every facet of the business. Up until his passing in 2018 patriarch, Joe Glik, interacted daily with associates. In his early nineties, he traveled to stores and asked one crucial question: “How can we do better?” Today, his sons Jeff and Jim carry on his legacy of community, generosity, and passion for retail.
Each Glik’s store location is personally selected by a member of the Glik family. And while many major decisions are overseen by people with the name “Glik,” our family business has grown to include over 500 associates across 10 states. Store managers have the decision-making authority that encourages them to have closer ties with their communities and focus 100% on the customer service that has built this company. We are thankful for all the people who open the doors and greet our customers every day.
Our family grew up talking about retail around the dinner table. After college, we worked for major retailers around the country. Then, with that experience under our belts, we came back home to Glik’s. Along with our buying team, we constantly scout the best vendors from New York to Los Angeles. Whether it is Patagonia, Yeti, Simply Southern, KanCan Jeans or Alex and Ani, we make sure you get the latest looks as soon as they are available. And while we have grown into one of the nation’s largest privately-held stores, we have remained agile enough to turn on a dime to react to trends. Our mission is to bring you all this in a way that is warm, friendly and familiar.
Four generations of Gliks have weathered depressions, recessions, wars, the advent of mega stores, culture shifts, and the onset of online retailing. Styles too have changed from simple jeans and overalls to fashion-forward designs and high-tech outdoor gear. But customers still flock to our stores for the latest fashion trends and brands. With 60+ locations over 10 states, there are plans for expansion on the horizon every year.
Thank you for shopping with us,
Jeff and Jim Glik
