Our History

Founded in 1912 by Great-Great Grandma Robertson, Berger Hardware Inc has survived two world wars, the Great Depression, and every recession that has taken place thus far. Initially, a woman-owned business, Berger Hardware Inc has always been owned by the Robertsons. Currently, we are a fifth-generation family-owned business that has stayed up and running for over a hundred years. Now, you may be wondering why Berger is the name if the Robertson family is the true owner. Well, Great-Great Grandma Robertson moved to San Diego and met a man named Berger. As part of their love story, they went into business together, and the Berger name remained but thankfully, the business had more stability than the namesake. Otherwise, we wouldn’t still be here in San Diego, proudly serving our loyal customers.

Meet Our Team

Over the years, our family-owned business has grown into a team of dedicated hardware experts.
