Lorne Rich is the third-generation to be operating Kornblum's Men’s Wear in Grey Bruce, downtown Owen Sound. His grandparents, Isadore & Sady Kornblum established the original dry goods store in 1940. In 1947 they moved to their current location and sold clothing for the entire family. Eventually they specialized into offering men’s clothing only.
Early on, Lorne realized he couldn't compete with large box stores, so he worked to ensure Kornblum's was different. As a result he works a little harder to give extra customer service that you don’t get at a mall. He provides slightly upper-scale, excellent valued higher-quality clothing.
Lorne's philosophy of retail is to work hard and do it well. He’s happy to be keeping the Kornblum’s name alive in Owen Sound and the surrounding Grey Bruce area.
