Friedman's Department Store


The experience at Friedman’s is still as tailored as it was in the 1920s, but you wouldn’t know it by the wide variety of HIP footwear they now carry today, including Puma, Reebok, Adidas, Converse, Nike, New Balance, and Perry Ellis.

Since its beginning, Friedman’s has enjoyed giving back to the community with their annual back to school event, where they partner with the YMCA and local schools to provide children who are in need of a pair of shoes.

Special two-time winners

Congratulations a second time to Friedman’s Department Store! Since their win back in February of last year, Friedman’s hosted another successful back to school event at their store in North Minneapolis. They even caught the attention of CBS Minnesota and were featured on WCCO news.

Flashback to February 2016:

With this amazing donation we will be able to supply an additional 10 children with shoes and back packs filled with school supplies. Thank you Mill City Credit Union! ~ Sue Friedman, Owner since the 70s
