Bealls was founded in 1915 by young 22 year old Robert Beall near his home in Florida. He was only 22 when he started the company, so he didn’t have much money saved.
Pictured below is the founder, as an older man, not a 22 year old spring chicken anymore.
He poured his entire life savings into the initial startup investment, and then he had to use empty wooden packing crates for the initial display tables.
I think his display table innovation was artsy and creative, and it showed he had a flair for being able to get by with less, which he would need as his store tried to weather through WWII and the Great Depression in the next few years.
His innovation extended to pricing and naming as well. His store sold everything for under a dollar, so Bealls was first called “The Dollar Limit”. After WWII and inflation, he was still selling the same types of dry goods, but he had to rename his store “The Five Dollar Limit”, as prices had to increase that much after all the inflation from the war.
During the depression, his store was hit hard and he lost it, having to sell to the bank. They let him stay on working there as a manager. Then, tenaciously he saved up and in 1944 he rebought it and was able to keep the brand going, much of the reason it still is what it is today.
Despite a few road bumps, the store is today still in the hands of the original founding family. I think it’s cool they have been able to keep the store in the family all these years – pictured below is one of the newer Beall generations – Matt Beall – who is an original Beall and one of the owning members of the Bealls Florida stores today.
Bealls Florida is US department store company with online and physical locations. It was created in 1915 in Florida, as the name itself suggests.
