ABOUT LIDS CANADA
You might've heard the saying "put a lid on it". For American hat company Lids, that idiom has a very different meaning. Specializing in athletic headwear, the company has been putting a "lid" on thousands of happy customers since coming on the scene in 1995. With a hat for every major sports team, Lids gives sports fans an easy way to show their loyalty with trendy, quality hats and caps.
Like many businesses, Lids began as a shot in the dark by friends Glenn Campbell and Scott Molander. Seeing a gap in the market when it came to specialty athletic headwear, the pair went out on a limb, hoping their idea will take off among mall-goers. The pair opened their first location in Lafayette, Indiana, and to their surprise managed to sell over 6,000 hats during the 1995 holiday season. Gambling on the popularity of local sports teams and the willingness of shoppers to spend $20 on an impulse buy, Campbell and Molander quickly opened more locations throughout the United States.
Since those early days at the Indiana mall, Lids has come a long way, changing ownership several times and eventually becoming a successful multi-brand business. Today, Lids operates under Hat World Inc., along with sister brands Lids Locker Room, Lids Clubhouse, Lids Team Sports and the e-commerce business at Lids.ca. The company sells their wide selection of hats, as well as other branded merchandise including clothing, bags, cell phone cases, blankets and sunglasses.
Your team may not have made the playoffs, but that doesn't mean you love them any less. Lids.ca frequently offers deals on hats and gear bearing the logos of eliminated teams.
