Forman Mills was founded by Rick Forman, who began selling clothing at flea markets in 1977. Forman's business grew, so he opened a clothing store in Philadelphia in 1981. A warehouse superstore that offered a more extensive selection of clothing opened in 1985. It continued to grow into a national chain of retail stores that offer affordable, designer clothing. There are now over 25 stores open.
