Bealls - Deep in the heart of Texas
The first Bealls store opened in 1923 in the town of Henderson, Texas. The company was founded by three brothers, Archie, Robbie, and Willie. It continued to expand across Texas and the southern United States during the mid-20th century, eventually reaching a total of 60 stores. In 1988, the Bealls chain merged with another department store chain, Palais Royal, to form Specialtiy Retailers, Inc., a Houston-based company now known as Stage Stores Inc. Today, under the Stage Stores umbrella, customers in small to middle-sized American towns can find quality, brand name apparel with good value from over 800 locations across 40 states. The small-town heritage and customer service of the original Bealls store continues into the future, with each store committed to delivering a neighborhood feel where consumers can shop for the best in family clothing and accessories.
