During the summer of 1989, Tim and Mabel “Peg” Liebert had a vision to start a catalog business that contributed to the local economy by selling gift boxes with locally made artisanal products. While Tim worked as an engineer, Peg went to work on "Mabel's Kitchen." This was when going up against the rise of big box stores was not recommended and many though she was just another soccer mom with a hobby that wasn’t going to pay for itself. With the help of her husband and three children, the catalog “Mabel’s Kitchen” turned into five brick and mortar stores called the “Kansas Sampler.” Over time, licensed sports apparel for local teams began to play a bigger part of the company. After a good year in 2008, and despite the recession, the Lieberts decided to expand to other markets and “Rally House” was born. Eleven years later and thirty years after the beginning, Rally House has grown to ten states and over sixty stores with the same goal of selling local products. Your city. Your House. Rally House.
