Fine apparel is On Deck and available everyday at The On Deck Clothing Company, since 1986. These shops provide one of the best shopping experiences of any clothing store anywhere. With over 150 brands to choose from, their selection of top line manufactures, and the depth within each line is unmatched. On Deck is the largest Tommy Bahama dealer in Wisconsin – you will find a huge selection of styles in this line for both men and women from shoes to shirts and tops to pants and watches.
We met with Mitch Larson, the owner, and discussed the philosophy of On Deck. We took a photo tour – though we have shopped here many times. Mitch told us that the On Deck Philosophy is simple:
“We provide quality merchandise, sold by knowledgeable staff, in an environment that is friendly, interesting and entertaining. Our staff are chosen to be energetic, personable, and people-oriented. Training is ongoing, enabling staff to be knowledgeable on products and policies, in addition to being efficient and courteous in meeting all of the individual customer’s needs. A quick glance around any of the On Deck stores demonstrates the great care that has gone into each location in an effort to provide the most pleasant shopping experience possible.”
Well, in some businesses their guiding philosophy never leaves the written page, but for On Deck, it is clear they live and breathe this policy everyday at the shops. They deliver.
Their anchor shop in Fish Creek is in an historic building, and you are greeted with creative displays like the spectacular 1948 wooden Chris Craft boat right on the floor shop. It is worth stopping in this shop just to see the boat, but while you are there, you will find the selection hard to resist ˆ some item or several will be calling your name! And if you want, you can take a virtual tour of the men's and women's On Deck shops in Fish Creek right now - click here for the virtual tour!
The Fish Creek shop is right on Main Street – right at the corner of Hwy 42 where it turns north/south. The Egg Harbor shop is located in the Main Street Shops – a two-building shoppers delight right in the heart of Egg Harbor. And the Sister Bay shop is across from the Sister Bay Marina, and there you won’t find a Chris Craft, but a tugboat!
Meticulously displayed throughout the shops are clothing treasures from caps to shoes to accessories to light jackets. This is casual elegance at its best. The left side of the building is devoted to men’s apparel, while the women’s side to the right is housed in an elegant new building built to blend with the historic 100 year old original building. You will find a large range of offerings at various price points – but all carefully selected garments to meet your casual needs.

We have made many purchases in these shops (On Deck and Lower Deck) over the years, and have always been pleased with the quality of the pieces, and the courteous and helpful staff.
