Abbott celebrates 75 years

Abbott, a wholesaler in the home décor and giftware industry, is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

From its beginnings, this family-run business has grown to become a trusted supplier for retailers across Canada and the U.S. Founded by Ben and Doris Abbott in 1949, Abbott started as a small operation with a passion for beautiful merchandise. Their dedication to quality, style and dependability quickly helped them earn the trust of retail partners, according to the company.

David and Lee Abbott have guided the company for the past five decades, ensuring its growth and sustainability. Their combined efforts have aimed to uphold the values of excellence, integrity, balance, growth, and respect, blending tradition with innovation.

Abbott’s success is rooted in its product selection and design, the company said. Their dedicated in-house team works diligently to create designs that aim to capture attention on retail shelves, aligning with current trends and consumer preferences. Abbott releases 2,500 new items annually.

Reliability is a cornerstone of Abbott’s business philosophy. Abbott aims to provide their partners timely deliveries, consistent product quality and responsive customer service. According to the company, many of their retailers have been partners for decades.

Many of Abbott’s team members have been with the company for several decades, and the company strives to foster an environment where collaboration and growth are encouraged.

None of what Abbott achieved in its 75-year history would have been possible without the enduring partnerships of thousands of fantastic retailers, the company said. The company continued that it is forever grateful to a customer base who are dedicated, loyal, and supportive.

As Abbott celebrates 75 years, David, Lee, general manager Jody Abbott, and the third generation of family members say they remain committed to providing exceptional products and service.

“Reflecting on our journey, we’re immensely grateful for our team and loyal customers. Their support inspires us every day,” David said.

Abbott will celebrate its 75th anniversary this summer at its permanent showroom at SHOW T.O. in The International Centre (Showroom 222) in Mississauga, Ontario. The celebrations will take place during Toronto Market Week from Aug. 8-15.
