In September 1991, Cornerstone mailed its first catalog, Frontgate, to 300,000 upscale American households. The aim of this new direct marketing company was to offer these consumers products and services of unprecedented quality. Since that time, Cornerstone has enjoyed tremendous growth. In 1996, we were recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the nation's 500 fastest growing companies.
