Kenmore Stamp Company started in 1932 in a spare office at the Niagara Falls Smelting and Refinery Corporation in upstate New York. Ernest Greenway Jarvis, president and sole owner of the refinery had been advised by his doctor to take up a hobby. He was badly in need of rest and relaxation. Overwork and fatigue were threatening his health.
Returning to his boyhood stamp collection, he quickly became absorbed in this fascinating activity and greatly expanded his albums. On a whim he placed an advertisement offering his duplicate stamps for sale to interested collectors. An avalanche of requests poured in. Working late into the night filling orders and answering correspondence wasn't exactly the therapy the doctor had in mind.
Nevertheless, Jarvis was overjoyed to be working with stamps again and thrilled to be of service to fellow collectors.
For over 80 years Kenmore has helped millions of collectors find value and enjoyment from the World's Most Rewarding Hobby! They measure success by the satisfaction their collector-friends receive, desiring to exceed their expectations at all times, to become the most respected company in the philatelic industry.
