The original unnamed shop opened on the boardwalk of Grand Beach in Grand Beach Provincial Park during the summer of 2011. Juan More Thing was founded in 2012 and is now a 1,000 square foot emporium in Grand Marais filled with a colossal selection of active lifestyle apparel, bathing suits, jewelry, beach toys, and the world famous Chula sandal line. We have grown into a famous destination. We have sold and shipped our products to as far away as Australia! The Juan More Thing and Grand Beach Surf Club logo and names (with minor revisions) are recognized around the world.

The company has established several licensing agreements including that with Chula Beach Stores Group, creators of the world famous Chula Sandals from Mexico and the original Grand Beach Surf Club & Juan More Thing branded apparel.
