In an industry marked by steady turnover and tough competition, Glik’s would stand out from the pack on longevity alone. In 1897 Joseph Glik opened the first Glik’s location in St. Louis, MO as a menswear store. A second location in Madison, IL then expanded into a full-blown department store. The company has stayed in the family, and now over 120 years later we are recognized as the 14th oldest retailer in the United States. In 2021 Glik’s headquarters moved to Collinsville, IL from Granite City, IL where we located for 58 years. Our new 50,000 square foot facility is designed to house our fast-growing office, distribution and e-commerce needs. With the fourth and fifth generations of the Glik family at the helm, we continue to focus on the growth of our company with nearly 70 stores in 11 states.
