A. Hamburger & Sons Co. was a department store founded in 1881 by Asher Hamburger and operated exclusively in Southern California until 1989. The Hamburger family first started its retail store, originally known as the People's Store, on Main street near Requena street and expanded to the Great White Store. It was the largest department store building west of Chicago at that time. In 1923, it was acquired by May Company California.
