About Business

Straus for Men has been a part of the rich North Dakota history since 1879. We are the oldest family owned retail business in the state.

2016 - Like many of the great legends in Fargo history, a beloved retail treasure will soon make its evolutionary debut. Straus is coming back to Fargo, under the new ownership of Chad Herring. Chad worked for the historic company more than 20 years ago. The new Straus For Men clothing store opened it's doors on November 30, 2016 at 4487 Calico Drive South in Fargo, ND.

Nearly one year ago in January, brothers John and Rick stern closed the Fargo store after more than 135 years in business. “Four generations as a family-owned company is a great run,” said Rick Stern. He added “At the time we wanted to retire, we didn’t have anyone within the family who wanted to take it over, but now we can pass the torch to Chad as a 5th generation owner and we couldn’t be happier.”

Herring intends to build on the long-standing tradition of high quality products and outstanding service for men of all ages while adding a modern twist with additional brands and accessories that will appeal to a younger demographic.

The new Straus For Men store will feature the following brands: Coppley, S. Cohen, Orox, Enro, Ballin, True Grit, 34 Heritage and 7 Diamonds to name a few. Straus For Men will also offer personal care items and gifts.
