Gus Ernst

Gus Ernst founded Gus Ernst Company, Inc. over sixty years ago in San Francisco.

He believed in offering customers a variety of merchandise with value pricing in an atmosphere of hominess and good humor.

Gus is no longer with us, but his spirit lives on in the store and in his daughter, Steph, who has run the joint for the last thirty-five years.
