Solomon Gump started his family business in 1861, selling jewelry and luxury goods. A century and a half later, Gump’s is one of the most trusted luxury brands in the country. But the business has fallen on hard times. In later 2018, Gump’s closed its doors. Now that the business has been acquired, it’s ready to reintroduce itself to customers.
Gump’s San Francisco is looking to reopen its doors, sticking to what built the name up and adapting it for the future. Anne Chachas, Executive Vice President for Gump’s San Francisco, praised the brand’s connection to its clientele. And now it’s up to new leadership to gather the products needed to make an exceptional experience that’ll have a similar effect on a different customer base.
AS with the company’s founding, Gump’s is going back into the hands of a family. John and Diane Chachas started their investment in Gump’s back in 2007, and now with their children Jack, Christopher, and Anner, the company’s leadership will apply the same king of family orientation that built up its reputation. It’s a move that was praised by Antionette Gump, the great-great granddaughter of Solomon Gump. Learn more about in This Article.
The Gumps brand carries an assortment of jewelry, pearls, and jade imported from various parts of Asia. They’re also known for homewares, furnishings, crystal, and fine china. It’s been the location to access these luxury goods in the San Francisco bay area. The Chachas family wants to uphold that tradition as they go through redevelopment, but expand with an online presence in time for the fall 2019 shopping season.
The goal is to be up and going in time for the Christmas season, Anne Chachas said in a recent statement. Gump’s has always been a hot location with San Franciscans during that time of year, and the Chachas are looking to once again be part of that tradition.
