Glik's Department Store
124 South Buchanan Street
Edwardsville, IL 62025
Since 1897, our family has proudly operated a family business that has withstood the test of time. Glik family members are involved in every facet of the business. In fact, the current patriarch, Joe Glik, still interacts daily with associates. In his late eighties, he travels to stores and asks one crucial question: “How can we do better?”
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 400 associates. Store managers have the decision-making authority that encourages them to have closer ties with their communities. Glik’s “Make it Right” policy gives our associates the ability to ensure that your visit to one of our stores is a positive one. We are thankful for all the people that 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 this experience under our belts, we came back home. Along with our buying team, we constantly scout the best vendors from New York to Los Angeles. Whether it is Silver Jeans, North Face, Fox Racing, LA Idol or Hurley, 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 store chains, 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.
Whether in our retail stores, or at gliks.com, our company is committed to providing big city fashions with small town service.
Thank you for shopping with us.
Joe, Jeff and Jim Glik
