Enrich the communities we serve as a fashion leader to our customers and as a responsible employer to our family of associates.

While service is at the core of the retail business, giving back to the greater community has always been an extension of our business approach. Through our website, we offer each customer the opportunity to donate a portion of their purchase to a charity (at no cost to them!) In our stores, we participate in the local Chamber of Commerce in each of the communities where we operate. We also empower and support each individual store to get involved in community events. This is particularly notable on the annual “Glik's Give Back Tuesday” when each store designates a local charity to donate a portion of that day's sales.

Through the generosity of Joe Glik’s philanthropic vision, Glik’s is the benefactor of two community parks: one in Edwardsville, Illinois and one in Highland, Illinois. As a company, we support Lift For Life Academy, The Little Bit Foundation, the Jewish Federation of Southern Illinois, and United Way.

Be the best specialty store in each community we serve

Every time we open a new location, we take the time to consider the needs of the surrounding community because opening a store makes us part of that community. To that end, it's important to us that we are thoughtful of what we can bring to any new location. The insights of our managers and staff guide us as we fill our stores with brands and styles.
