Roy H. Bjorkman, Inc. was an exclusive women’s Minneapolis specialty shop founded by Roy Hampus Bjorkman in 1923-24. Born in Lincoln,Nebraska in 1893, Bjorkman moved to Minneapolis where his ladies store became a high end enterprise carrying dresses, coats, suits furs , millinery, shoes, etc. at 931 Nicollette Ave. For example, in a 1930 ad, he offered Phillip Mangone coats suits starting at $75. He sourced designs from Paris and New York and offered fur services as well as fine fashions in Bjorkman’s Le Petit Salon. Bjorkman retired in 1976, but the business was still operating in 1984 at the time of his death.
