Shumsky is Founded in 1953

Announcement Date: January 1, 1953

Our rich history dates back to the 1950’s, when Hy Shumsky and his wife, Elsie, founded Shumsky with $50.00, a few catalogs, a card table and two chairs in a 10 foot square room. Hy believed he should be involved with every order from start to finish – typing and billing orders, collecting payment and even hand delivering local orders to his clients, he did it all. Hy continued to work for the company until his death at the age of 98.
