At Random Clothier, our mission is to provide our trend-savvy customers with the most current fashions, accessories, art, handmade goods, vintage items, and gifts to fit their “of the moment” and contemporary lifestyles. We give a relaxed and comfortable boutique shopping experience where customers are top priority. They can shop, talk, lounge, relax, have fun, and enjoy their shopping.
The random concept was created as a senior project for a fashion merchandising class that the youngest Hillman, Summer (Karst), took at Western Illinois University. With input and direction from parents Bob & Kathy, who have been in the fashion and retail industries for over 30 years each, the concept became a reality. With Drew joining the team and opening the Peoria stores and now the website, the business has developed in many new and exciting ways. With a combined 75 years in the retail industry, the Hillman family knew it was important that random offer a unique shopping experience to set it apart from the average boutique.
The first random opened in Myrtle Beach, S.C. in September, 2005. The second random, in Peoria, IL, opened in March, 2007. The third, also in Peoria, in September 2012. Welcome to the fourth, February 2014.
Random Myrtle Beach is located at The Market Common on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. With a wide variety of attractions, Market Common is an awesome destination for residents and travelers alike. Random Peoria resides at both Junction City and Main Street Commons. At nearly sixty years young, Junction City is rich in history and character. After many renovations and additions, Junction City is an ideal shopping destination. Main Street Commons, on the edge of Bradley University’s campus, is a great location for both students and Peoria professionals.
