As we always say... "Stack 'Em Deep, and Sell em Cheap!"
Kindy's Factory Outlet Store opened in 1980 as part of Brite Star Manufacturing Company, a well known Christmas manufacturer, located in South Philadelphia. Literally opening its warehouse doors at the request of neighbors of this South Philly plant, the factory outlet sold the tinsel garland, icicles, light sets, tree toppers and ornaments that the company manufactured and imported since 1932.
The outlet store, operating out of a portion of the company's warehouse space, ran year-round for the first few years, selling everything from Christmas decorations to house wares and clothing. Then the decision was made by brothers Sandy and John Kinderman, owners of the family-run business, to operate strictly as a Christmas outlet during the holiday season. The idea quickly caught on.
Before long, Kindy's Factory Outlet was the premier stop for "all things Christmas" in the region. The warehouse space lent itself perfectly to the factory outlet model - shelves packed floor to ceiling, fully stocked aisles, featuring the latest in outdoor sculptures, trees, light sets, garlands, stockings, baskets, wreaths, crafting items, candles, ornaments and giftware.
As a true factory outlet, it could sell products at factory-direct prices. Kindy's truly lived up to its advertising motto, made famous by Sandy Kinderman, "We stack 'em deep and sell 'em cheap." Over the years, the Kindy's shopping experience became a fun-filled holiday tradition that proudly continues today, 30 years later.
