It all began in 2016. Our family business owned quite a few retail stores throughout California, but none of them were sock stores. We tried different concepts from time to time, and some of them succeeded and some failed. One of our stores was a children's clothing store in San Diego's Gaslamp District, and it wasn't doing well. We decided to change the use, but to what?
Someone suggested a novelty sock store. We sold some novelty socks in a couple of stores, and they did marginally well. But a whole store? That seemed like overkill, but after much discussion, we decided to give it a try. The results were outstanding from the start. Located a few blocks from the San Diego Convention Center, our new store was a huge hit with conventioneers and other tourists. The store was fun, it was colorful, and it was definitely something different, with over 2000 designs. Knowing we were on to something, we've expanded over the years with Sock Harbor stores throughout California.
We do the design for our own brands (Bigfoot and Sock Harbor), and we sell other brands as well. We basically do it all, and love what we do. As our family business continues to introduce new designs and grow, please join us on our journey.
