Alan Fredric Bloomfield, a Lexington legend in the mail order and catalog business who made Galls Inc. a national and international company, died Monday at home. He was 86.
A lifelong resident of Lexington, Bloomfield bought Gall’s Police Equipment Co. (Galls Inc.) in 1980 and built it into a national and international equipment-supply business for police and fire departments, federal agents and emergency medical teams.
The company developed a catalog business and became the largest U.S. company for public safety equipment in the world.
