Kirkland’s was founded by Carl Kirkland in 1966. Kirkland began selling inexpensive home items door to door before opening his own store. Today, the company has more than 340 stores in 35 states, alone with an eCommerce website.
The company is a chain of home decor and home furnishing stores, offering items such as end tables, lamps, rugs, throw pillows, ottoman’s, and wall decor. In addition, the company sells holiday decor items, such as Christmas trees, Easter baskets, and Halloween decorations.
Kirkland’s went public on the NASDAQ in 2002 and can be found under the ticker symbol: KIRK.
The company is different from other home decor stores as it sets up displays and entire rooms with items available for sale, rather than offering a boxed item on a shelf. Current headquarters are in Brentwood, Tennessee.
