Great Water Clothing was created by Keith Nelson in 2021. The inspiration for the store are the amazing communities and activities that surround Lake Minnetonka. The name Great Water is translated from the Dakota Native American words 'mni tanka' which is where Lake Minnetonka got it's name.
The motivation for the store was originally going to be a fundraising tool for the South Shore Softball League, in which Keith is heavily involved, that plays at the Excelsior Commons. Unfortunately, Keith was laid off in early 2021 and decided to expand the store to a more broad demographic to help supplement the lost income for his family.
Our Mission is to provide quality, well designed, and fashionable clothing that highlights our love of Lake Minnetonka and lake life in general.
All of our products are printed on demand. This allows us to add new designs and products frequently while keeping our prices low. The one draw back to this model is, yes, it will take a few days for us to print your order before we can ship it to you.
