Howard's Appliance coming to Alhambra

Howards Appliance and Flat Screen Superstores will be coming to Alhambra, according to city officials. It will be located at 2012 West Main Street, in a site that was previously designated for Circuit City next to Fresh & Easy. A Sears Appliance & Mattress, which opened last spring, is nearby.

While Howard's now has branches all over Southern California, its roots are in San Gabriel. Howard Roach started the store in 1946 as a television repair shop in the back of a sporting goods store. When the service side prospered, he expanded it to its own shop at on the corner of Valley Blvd. and Palm in San Gabriel. More than a half century from those humble beginnings, Howard Appliance has grown to more than 10 southern California locations, including La Habra, Torrance, all the way down to Laguna Hills. Howard's also is 100 percent employee owned company, with the majority of their employees having a financial stake in the company, according to the store’s website.

  1. Would have preferred a restaurant, but most likely it’s too large for a restaurant; either way happy to read that finally there will be an business occupant, hopefully they are succesful because the longer the building stood vacant, it was an eyesore for the area & most likely it would have been a graffiti target.

  2. Well, I guess it’s better than nothing. I think they will do ok, although I had a bad experience with them in 2003 at the La Habra store.

    Best of luck to them….in terms of TVs, they will have stiff competition from Costco and online sales etc.

  3. Its great to know that a tenant has been found for the commercial space at 2012 W Main St. This space has been vacant for quite a while and never been occupied. Howards on Valley Blvd. seems to have been around forever and having this store fits the same store-type (electronics) originally intended for this location.

    This business will be a good complement to all the food stores already at this location (along with Chase Bank). It will provide more choices and act as an alternative shopping site for electronics/appliance customers who would otherwise go to Costco, Target, and/or Sears.

Ask your Alhambra City Council OR your Alhambra Unified School Board Candidates a question ahead of the 2020 elections!
