About Us


Established in 1929.

FREEDS is Canada's Largest Independent Clothing Store for Men and Women. For over 90 years, we have been family owned and operated by the Freed and Orman families, now into our fourth generation.

Founded in 1929 by Sam Freed, FREEDS is Canada's largest independent men's and ladies' clothing store. Originally named Sam’s Place,  Sam was a man that believed in his staff, his customers and himself. Regardless of any obstacles that were put in his way, Sam succeeded and grew our store. Just a few months after he set up shop the stock market crashed. Through the Depression and World War II Sam fought to keep his dream alive and cemented his business by providing great quality merchandise with outstanding customer service.

FREEDS offers over 50,000 square feet of retail space to fully service men and women. With the constant change in the 21st century, FREEDS is ever evolving and is always looking to provide the customer with the hottest new fashion trends. 

"It all started from Sam Freed," says Dan Orman (Co-Owner). "He was one of the most charismatic, positive men you'll ever see. He just wanted everybody to be happy and get along." Ari Freed agrees. "Sam Freed established a foundation," he says, "and we have learned a lot of things over three generations that have allowed us to build on it. Part of that is never standing still."
