In 1977, with an $80 loan from his father, young entrepreneur Rick Forman started selling t-shirts and sweatshirts at flea markets on the weekend. Four years later, he opened his first Forman Mills Clothing stores in Philadelphia. Today there are Forman Mills discount clothing outlets in New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland and Michigan.
On Sunday, January 25, Rick Forman will appear on CBS’ Undercover Boss. He says as part of his disguise he wore a $3,000 wig for 10 days. He also said he didn’t shed a tear “but they tried to get me.”
