The Uptown Neighborhood News reports that San Francisco-based Goorin Brothers will open a hat shop in the Uptown Theater building at Hennepin Avenue and Lagoon Avenue. Goorin Brothers has a long history dating back to 1895 when hats were sold from a horse cart in Pittsburgh. Goorin Brothers’ website indicates a Minneapolis store is coming, which would be the company’s 26th store.

    Fantastic, I have a plethora of their hats. They are wearable because they aren’t too expensive and very well built.
