November 01, 2013 • Leave a Comment
The Aladdin Company was a pioneer in the pre-cut, mail order home industry. Its primary competitors were Montgomery Ward and Sears, Roebuck and Company in the US and Eaton's in Canada. Aladdin began operations in 1906 and ceased operations in 1987.
Aladdin's output fell below 1000 homes in 1928 on the eve of the Great Depression, and never recovered. It exited the Canadian market in 1952. The company continued to produce catalogs, and maintained sales of a few hundred homes per year through the 1960's. During the 1970's sales fell further and by 1982 the company ceased manufacturing. The company ceased all operations in 1987.
