About Us

Finan McDonald Clothing Company opened it's doors in downtown Sandpoint, Idaho, in 1987.  Starting out as a different kind of men's store, it specialized in natural fiber clothing with an outdoorsy look and feel. It was a hit almost immediately and women started asking for a similar look for themselves. Soon thereafter, Finan also began carrying women’s apparel. The store has outgrown several locations and is now in a new space three times larger than the original. A tourist's and local's favorite for almost 25 years, Finan McDonald carries both men's, women’s and children's apparel, footwear, accessories, and even travel gear.

Owners Ben and Rhonda Tate expanded their business into downtown Coeur d'Alene in 1998 where they also outgrew their original location and moved into larger quarters next door. Both shops carry the same broad range of casual clothing, footwear and accessories reflecting North Idaho's outdoor lifestyle.

The Man, Finan McDonald
A 6' 5" wild redheaded Scotsman, Finan McDonald must have been an imposing figure around here back in 1807; when the average height of a man was just over 5'! He was one of the first Europeans to explore this area with the famous surveyor and explorer, David Thompson, and set up and ran many trading posts throughout the Inland Northwest and British Columbia. In many respects, Finan was North Idaho's first retailer! His great sounding name carries on today with Finan McDonald Clothing Company.
