The Honest John's stores are a family of stores started in Galena, Illinois. Honest John's Trading Post opened in 1980 on historic Main street. Honest John's Emporium and Union Leathers soon followed. We have crossed the river recently and opened up Honest John's Fashion Emporium in Dubuque, Iowa. Beyond the Horizon in Galena has opened as well.
