Bering’s was founded in 1940, as a lumberyard, by August C. Bering, Jr. Over time, the store evolved beyond lumber to become one of the most unique retail concepts anywhere. In fact, our employees often boast, “If you don’t need it, it’s not here.”
But the Bering family wanted to deliver much more than hardware products; they wanted to provide customers with service so good, it made them feel like part of the family.
Since 1940 much has changed, both in our world and the way we shop. Old-fashion service is hard to come by in our modern world. Stores like ours are becoming a rarity, which is why we want to thank you for your continued loyalty over the past 75 years. Thank you for helping us become Houston’s home and hardware store.
Stay tuned as we celebrate throughout the year…
