Henry David Lee established the H.D. Lee Mercantile Company a wholesale grocery distributor in Salina, Kansas in 1889. His timing was perfect – meeting a major need in a region of the country where the population was growing exponentially. 

 The company continued to expand its fashion lines throughout the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and launched Lee National Denim Day in 1996. Today’s Lee is all about bringing more fits, styles, finishes, features, and choices than ever before to the market.
