Kirkland's, Inc. consists of more than 340 stores in 35 states and carries wall decor, textiles, lamps, furniture, artificial floral products and decorative accessories.

According to the company history, Kirkland's was founded by Carl Kirkland in 1966 in Jackson, Tennessee, when he began selling home accessories at low prices. Since then the chain has grown to over 340 stores and continues to expand.[2][3][4]


Each year, Kirkland's hosts events and special promotions in benefit of Camp Charley, a camp for critically ill children in Scottsville, Kentucky.[5] Kirkland's past philanthropic projects also include participation in ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, as well as promotion of a holiday-themed CD in benefit of Habitat for Humanity.[6]


On March 17, 2005, the company said quarterly profit fell, and it would restate prior period financial statements to reflect corrections to its lease-related accounting.[7]
