It’s great finding a small shop you love while on vacation. It’s even better when they have an online store so you can keep shopping with them once you’re back home. I also love that this small business is making it big time! Welcome to Glik’s.
Providing staples and trends since 1897, Glik’s is still going strong. In fact, it’s now the 4th generation of the Glik family running the business.
They have definitely grown over the years… over 53 locations throughout Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota
Each location, though, is chosen by a Glik family member. And, Joe Glik (late 70’s) still visits the stores.
Though the merchandise is geared to ages 14-30ish, there’s a little bit for everyone here.
From board shorts, to maxi dresses; from Toms shoes, to flip flops; t-shirts to sweaters.
I was cracking up at the guy behind me in line extremely excited to find a pair of camouflage cargo shorts. I was equally excited about my $10 made in California shoes! Both of us are slightly out of Glik’s target audience.
I have a feeling it won’t be my last puchase from Glik’s either. It’s not often you can find a shop that make the whole family happy!
