Norm Thompson is the "Escape from the Ordinary™" company... a nationwide catalog and Internet retailer that's been a leader in the direct marketplace since 1949. In part, that leadership comes from our innovative product offerings and insistence on the highest level of customer service (we were the first to offer customers total satisfaction with our absolute no-risk, You be the Judge™ Guarantee). But it also comes from getting involved in our local community, supporting worldwide non-profit organizations, and setting new standards in environmental responsibility.
Half a century ago we were selling hand-tied fishing flies to discerning sportsmen. Today, we feature high-quality men's and women's clothing, shoes and accessories, gourmet food and one-of-a-kind gifts. We offer discerning customers an "Escape from the Ordinary" shopping experience by searching the world for unique products with a social and environmental conscience — like sustainable salmon, organic cotton, indigenous artwork from Africa, and traditionally crafted clothing from South America.
