Montgomery Ward ~ Wardway Homes { 8 Vintage House Kit ~ Catalogs } On Dvd For Sale

DESCRIPTION

Montgomery Ward was an American department store, founded in 1872 as the world's #1 mail order business. At it's height, it was one of the largest retailers in the United States. In the 1920's, Montgomery Ward & Co. sold kit houses just as Sears did. Montgomery Ward was started in 1872 as a single sheet catalog offering household goods with "satisfaction guaranteed." Like many companies, Montgomery Ward soon offered house plans, blue prints, and materials lists, and then started offering the actual kit homes in their catalog in 1919. Like its competitors , Aladdin and Sears, had been successfully selling "houses by mail" for years and had the manufacturing and infrastructure organization and facilities to design, cut, and package the entire house from a number of regional centers across the country. Montgomery Ward did not. To meet their demand for kit homes, Montgomery Ward subcontracted the manufacturing to Gordon Van Tine. Montgomery Ward sold kit homes from about 1916 to 1931.
