Started as a dry goods store by Robert Beall Sr. in 1915, Bealls Florida was originally called The Dollar Limit, as everything cost a dollar. In 1918, the name was changed to the V (Five) Dollar Limit, as post World War I inflation had forced him to raise prices. During the depression, the bank foreclosed on his store, but Beall Sr. was able to buy it back in 1940.
In 1946, Beall’s son, E.R., joined his father and the stores were renamed to Beall’s Department Store. New stores followed, another in Bradenton, Florida in 1956 and in 1961, a store in Venice, Florida. E.R.’s son, Robert Beall II (Bob) joined the company in 1970. By 1987, Beall Outlet stores were being built, and in 1992, the first Beal Outlet store was set up outside of Florida.
