Our Story

Message from our President/CEO

Thank you for being a valued Lammle's customer. When we started Lammle's Western Wear & Tack back in 1983, we could never have anticipated our service and products would resonate quite so deeply with Canadians. But that's exactly what happened, and now we sit almost two dozen brick-and-mortar stores strong across much of Western Canada - open and ready to take care of your western needs.

We are a Canadian company born and raised, and remain family owned and operated, with a promise to stay committed to delivering a best-in-class experience - now and in the future.

Sincerely,

Barry Lammle

Our Mission

"TO PROVIDE THE LAMMLE'S EXPERIENCE: WELCOMING EVERYONE TO THE WESTERN LIFESTYLE BY OFFERING THE BEST SELECTION AND SERVICE, AND NEVER FORGETTING THE TRADITIONAL WESTERN VALUES WE WERE FOUNDED ON."

We're Home Grown and Family-Focused
Our story officially began in 1983, when Barry Lammle and his brother saw an opportunity in the retail market - which lead them to open the first 3 stores in their hometown of Calgary, Alberta. Their mission was simple: to address the real needs of everyday Albertans - those looking for a Western retail brand that provides better service, selection, and quality. As a result, Barry spent the next 39 years creating a lifestyle brand experience that welcomes people from all walks of life.

At that time, Barry’s focus was split between retail and ranching, which put him in an ideal position to learn firsthand what our future customers valued. A rancher first, but his retail experience and expertise has always been his true strength. His understanding of his customer’s needs, and his commitment to support local businesses and communities is what has helped Lammle’s become what it is today. We take pride in the fact that those who rely on us as their western clothing supplier are the same families, friends and neighbors we’ve stood beside through decades of good times and hard times alike — and our dedicated employees in our 23 stores across Western Canada wouldn’t dream of offering them anything but our very best.

Today, close to four decades later, Barry and his eldest son continue to keep the Lammle’s Experience focused on the needs of our customers through friendly service, huge selection, and quality products. We will always continue to offer that trustworthy, right-fit relationship where a handshake can say it all, and a commitment to ‘good old fashioned’ western values dictates everything we do.

So, whether you visit us online or in-store, know that we are always looking forward to the opportunity to treat you to the Lammle’s Experience and help you to Live your Own West.

Oh, and in case you were wondering - it's pronounced Lam-lee's. So often, we get "Lammels", "Lamles", "Lamless" or "Lamilles". That's all fine and good though - we look forward to serving you regardless of what you choose to call us!

Community Involvement

Serving our customers is more than just providing the Lammle’s Experience to everyone who comes through our doors. We also endeavor to ensure that the spirit of our lifestyle thrives in the communities we operate in. Do you have an opportunity you think we may be interested in? Let us know!
