When you’re talking about some of the most long-lasting luxury merchandise stores, there are few that lasted as long as Gump’s did. The store, which had locations in San Francisco, California and New York City, was first started in 1861.
Gump’s was, at first, a store that was nothing more than a frame shop when the Gump brothers first got their start. They had moved to San Francisco during the gold rush in order to try and make their way. They did indeed find that way, especially when they realized they could offer something quite a bit more interesting than picture frames.
At one point, Gump’s became a store that was looking for all the most interesting items they could offer, from all over the world. They sent people hither and yon, looking for luxury items people had never seen and couldn’t get their hands on anywhere else.
They also eventually opened a store in New York City. This allowed for Gump’s to offer those rare luxury items on both coasts of the United States. Eventually, the need for luxury items waned a bit. See This Page for more information.
The business started to struggle a bit. Eventually, Gump’s had to close its doors, at least for a few years. Now the store is coming back and is looking to be better than ever.
The luxury store had to close its doors and go into bankruptcy, but now it is returning to both San Francisco and New York. They are returning to the cities where they grew up and done business. They are going to be coming back just in time for the Holidays. That will allow those who used to shop at Gump’s will be able to get the items they were used to before the shutdown.

They have stated plans to open both digital and physical stores in time for the 2019 Christmas season. The new Gumps website, which retains the company’s former logo, also promises a re-opening in the fall of 2019. The web site also offers email signup and links to Instagram and Twitter pages.
