Interesting history on HomCo: ‘Home Interiors & Gifts Inc.’ (short HomCo) was founded 1957 by Mary C. Crowley after years of struggling to make ends meet as a single mother of two children. She worked in the insurance industry and the furniture industry as a salesperson and bookkeeper. She moved to the home sales industry when she joined Stanley Home Products becoming a top salesperson, and subsequently moved to World Gifts becoming a leading salesperson and manager. She quit 1957 and then put together her savings with loans from friends and a bank loan of $6,000 to start her own company, ‘Home Interiors & Gifts’. The new company found an under-served niche as both sales force and its customers were mostly women with little education that were depending on their husbands, focused on their children and homes. Crowley simply understood what made these people tick and a Bible-inspired philosophy that made a moral good out of home beautification added to her success.
