Our Story

The Import Store started retailing in malls.

You know, we’re just not the mall type. We tried it, we did well, but frankly, The Import Store is just a little too quirky for the mall. Besides, the astronomical rent put a damper on our desire to offer great prices.

No more! In 1995 we got our own place in the old Mapsco building near the corner of Henderson and Lancaster in Fort Worth. We filled the store with thousands of wholesale samples, made them available directly to the public, left the original price tags on, and never looked back!

FAMILY-OWNED and customer focused.

I’m a second generation retailer. My dad, Dan Kirkham, started this business in 1984, and taught me the ropes, based on his 40-year retail career.

The Import Store philosophy is to buy stuff people like at hard-to-believe prices and keep inventory turning. As an independent in a sea of national chains, we succeed by placing the highest value on personal service, hiring a great staff, and treating customers right.

Helping small business people get better deals.
Helping local charities get better deals and raise money.

The cost of a store and the ease of online shopping has made much easier for the the whole country to shop us. I am always looking for deals, but am now focused on helping chariies and small businesses grow. I am taking my great suppliers and linking them to 100s of direct sales people and small charities.
