David Burke and Spencer Barrett developed a friendship years ago, centered on a shared love of life at the lake. From that, they got a vision. What if they could create a clothing line based on just that? And hence, Great Lakes Northern Outfitters was born, with a simple motto encompassing the entire brand: Life is better at the lake.
They have decidedly different personalities, which they say helps to provide balance for their business. Spencer mans the logistics, while David dreams up big ideas. But they both spilled about their ups, downs and everything in between when they sat down with Twin Cities Live host Steve Patterson, in this edition of “Coffee with Cool People”, presented by our friends at Caribou Coffee.
