About Great Lakes North Outfitters
Spencer is the co-founder of Great Lakes Northern Outfitters, a Minneapolis based apparel brand inspired by life at the lake that he started as a senior at the Carlson School of Management. For Spencer and business partner David Burke, going North to the cabin was the foundation to their childhood. Whether it was taking the boat out at sunset, sharing stories around the bonﬁre, or jumping oﬀ a well-worn dock, life was simply better at the lake. Great Lakes was born from these memories and a realization that there weren’t any apparel brands that represented this lifestyle the right away.
