About GEARYS

The GEARYS Tradition

The Beginning…
 
GEARYS Beverly Hills first opened its doors in 1930, in its consistent current location, as a small neighborhood store that offered everything from hardware to dinnerware.  Named after our founder, H.L. Geary, himself a former President of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce, this little store had big potential.  Over the next 20 years, GEARYS Beverly Hills flourished becoming a well-known fixture in the ever growing city of Beverly Hills, expanding to include an even wider selection and solidifying our reputation for outstanding customer service

The Meyer Family…
In 1953, H.L. Geary retired selling GEARYS Beverly Hills to The Meyer Family.  Fred Meyer, another prominent local business man who already owned concessions in several of the local department stores, decided to take GEARYS Beverly Hills in a new direction offering a more focused selection of dinnerware and gifts.   Revamping the store and expanding the showroom space to offer an ever-growing assortment, Fred, along with his wife Ruth even added innovations like air conditioning.  Together the Meyers solidified GEARYS Beverly Hills position as a true a landmark in the city of Beverly Hills 
               

The Next Generation…

By the 1970’s the Meyers were ready to move their store forward again.  They had already succeeded in establishing GEARYS Beverly Hills as a Beverly Hills tradition, and now wanted to expand their reach and bring GEARYS Beverly Hills to the rest of the world.  Fred and Ruth’s son Bruce became the driving force behind the new goals for the company.  Bruce embraced the challenge expanding GEARYS Beverly Hills reach by launching a hugely successful mail order business – bringing the Beverly Hills tradition to the rest of the country.  In their flagship store Bruce partnered with world-class names such as Baccarat and Lalique; additions which would serve as the foundation of GEARYS Beverly Hills rise to be recognized as one of the country’s preeminent destinations for luxury dinnerware and gifts

A True Original…
 
The arrival of a newly defined Wedding Gift Registry signaled the arrival of a brand new GEARYS Beverly Hills showroom, expertly designed to showcasing our world-class selection of luxury dinnerware and gifts.  

Redesign…
Our flagship store was soon transformed again with the arrival of fine jewelry and watches in 1997.   In keeping with their long family history of moving the store forward the Meyer family sold GEARYS Beverly Hills to the Ross Family; owners of the well-known Rhode Island based jeweler Ross-Simons.


The Right Time…

With Ruth and Fred’s grandson Thomas Blumenthal at the helm as CEO, GEARYS Beverly Hills charted a thriving partnership with Rolex offering a selection of luxury timepieces that was unmatched in Los Angeles.

Poised to bring GEARYS Beverly Hills back into the family, Thomas reacquired the store in 2003 and building on our successful partnership with Rolex opened GEARYS Beverly Hills on Rodeo the following year.  A boutique store located on famed Rodeo Drive, this noteworthy watch shop featured not only a matchless selection of Rolex watches but marked the arrival of world renowned watchmaker Patek Philippe.   Having inherited the family passion for bringing the GEARYS Beverly Hills tradition to the world, Thomas followed up GEARYS Beverly Hills on Rodeo with a much celebrated Rolex boutique at the Westfield Century City Mall in 2009.   This project solidified the partnership between GEARYS Beverly Hills and Rolex laying the groundwork for our newly redesigned GEARYS Beverly Hills on Rodeo which opened in 2012.
