Glik’s 118th Anniversary | Did You Know?

About Glik’s  

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 Silver Jeans, The North Face, Fox Racing, Southern Shirt Company, Flying Monkey 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 ona dime to react to trends. Our mission is to bring you all this in a way that is warm, friendly and familiar.
