A Little Bit About Us
We started out as a brick and mortar discount department store chain, located primarily in the New England area and New York.
The chain was founded by Max Coffman in Framingham, Massachusetts in 1956, and was one of the earliest discount department stores in the country.
The idea of Mammoth MART was based on the idea used in supermarkets, where cash registers were centrally located, rather than being located in each department, in order to lower overhead.
Mammoth MART stores were a favorite store for closeouts, factory seconds, and bargains in general. Unlike many other discount stores, it had a no-frills, warehouse appearance.
Other discount department store retailers like K-Mart, Zayre, and Bradlees would subsequently expand on this concept.
The first advertising mascot was Marty the elephant, a smiling, blazer-wearing mammoth.
By 1969 Mammoth Mart had 35 stores. The chain was acquired by now-defunct King's Department Stores in 1978. In 1984 Ames Department Sore purchased the chain and converted them into Ames stores. Ames went out of business in 2002.
In 2004 Mammoth Mart returned online as Mammoth MART STORE. The store continues to buy overstock liquidations, wholesale items and factory direct deals at low prices and gives that savings back to customers.
In 2020 Mammoth MART STORE was rebranded with a new mascot and an easy to use website using AI for ordering, delivery and customer service.
