The Foursome is proud to be your local men’s shop for 82 years! It is a fun time to reflect back on fashion, store fronts, family and long-time Foursome friends.
The Foursome was founded in 1935. It began as a small general clothing store located on Lake Street in Wayzata, Minnesota, a small city 12 miles west of downtown Minneapolis. The store was founded by four golf playing school teachers who named their business “The Foursome”, in conjunction with their favorite past time. In 1952, the business moved into larger quarters in a remodeled grocery store at the intersection of Highways 12 and 101 in Wayzata.
In 1967 the business moved once more to a new enclosed mall in Wayzata, the Bay Center. Over the next several years the business began to expand with the addition of separate family stores. A Family Shoe Store was opened in 1970. In 1978, a Big & Tall Men’s Store was opened, filling a void in the local clothing market for this segment of customers. In 1983, The Foursome Children’s Store opened, carrying merchandise for infants through pre-teen children. In 1985, the addition of the Ladies Store completed the “Family Clothing and Shoes”. Can anyone recognize those two great salesmen?
In late 2007, the decision was made to concentrate on and enhance the business’ core strength of men’s and big & tall clothing and shoes, and close the women’s and children’s stores. The decision was made to say goodbye to Wayzata and move the business to a brand new building in neighboring Plymouth.
On November 14, 2009, The Foursome opened their brand new store in Plymouth, MN, one block north of Hwy 55 on Vicksburg Lane. The updated Foursome clothing and shoe store is now consolidated under one roof, offering fine apparel and footwear for men, including big & tall men’s sizes.
