There’s something about putting on a hat that’s akin to putting on armor and going into battle. Just take a look at a stadium full of fans when they are all decked out in their team gear. It’s like they’re ready to take on the world – but it’s mostly a world of fun, because once they get to the stadium they know they can whoop it up, down some beers, eat some fast food and come home feeling like a winner – if their team does. It’s one of the reasons the first LIDS store was opened back in 1995. At that time, few people thought a store devoted to hats would survive. Within the first year when sales reached over 6,000 units, folks were taking their hats off to owners Glenn Campbell and Scott Molander. Nowhere else could they find the selection of bucket, trucker, fitted mesh, adjustable and name brand hats as they could at LIDS. No doubt more than one mall manager who turned them down, took his hat off just to scratch his head while wondering how he let them get away.
Today, LIDS is the first place you think of when you need to dash out and get a hat in a particular style with a logo emblazoned on it. LIDS not only sell hats designed with logos from the NBA, NFL and NCAA, they have the jerseys, pennants to go along with them.
