The story of H. Stadiem is a generational one, the story of a business handed down to sons over the span of a century. Its building is a landmark, proudly standing in Kinston’s downtown on the same spot where Hyman Stadiem first opened a clothing store in 1903.

The Greensboro native, barely out of his teens, chose Kinston for its potential and for its central location among eastern North Carolina towns. In 1934, just as the country was rounding the corner of the Great Depression, Hyman handed control of the store to his younger sons Jacob & David.

The store’s 26,000 square feet hold a large selection of men’s, boys’, & children apparel and shoes for the entire family.

Advantages to shopping at H. Stadiem include free alterations, often done while the customer waits, and home delivery of infant furniture, even well outside the Kinston area.
