In 1987 Rick Gaby started A.K. Rikk’s in a small strip mall off 28th street in Grand Rapids, Michigan selling the major men’s brands in the 80's including Zegna, Hugo Boss, and Armani. His vision was to be the best resource of luxury goods through superior service, unique perspective and distinctive merchandise. When he started the business he was willing to take risks to deliver the most unique products to our customers and after much success doing so the store grew into a 28,000 square foot fashion destination. The campus was built to offer our customers an exclusive environment and unique shopping experience through our various amenities including the personal shopping suite, men’s made to measure suit room, fully stocked refreshment bar, in-house tailor shop, and children’s play haven. A.K. Rikk's is now a contemporary fashion destination that specializes in Men's and Women's clothing, furniture, and accessories.
Home to nearly a hundred brands, we curate our merchandise with a sharp eye for contemporary fashion and bring craftsmanship from around the world back to your closet. We are proud to employ some of the most talented and knowledgeable personal stylists who have a commitment to learning about our customers to anticipate their needs to style them for any occasion.
