ALCO Stores, Inc. has demonstrated a reliable record of growth over its century-long history. Based in Abilene, Kansas since 1901, we have successfully grown the company from its first single variety store, to the popular retail chain of more than 200 stores which today operates in 23 states. And we've done it all while still maintaining our personal mission of providing convenient, friendly, small-town service.

With that mission in mind, we have developed an innovative market and growth strategy. Since the late 1980’s, ALCO Stores has specifically targeted our expansion in smaller communities with limited access to other regional or national full-line retail chains, to offer these towns more convenient shopping. The strategy has been a success from day one, and we continue to enjoy serving those markets. In fact, the strategy has earned us a reputation as a progressive innovator in the retail industry.

Today, our stores achieve annual sales of $475 million, and each year we continue our successful track record of more than 100 years of steady, consistent growth by opening new stores in healthy, viable markets.

ALCO Stores, Inc. offers customers a wide variety of products at reasonable prices. Our specialty is delivering those products with the friendly, personal service found in the stores of yesteryear, but with the modern convenience and product selection that today's consumer expects. In a retail market that has sacrificed quality and service for inexpensive products, ALCO has proven to be a winner year after year, as it continues its steady growth throughout the central United States.
