We combine emerging technology with reliable standards to bring the best possible service to our customers. Our business is built on a foundation of strength through satisfied customers and equally satisfied staff.
We are blessed that nearly 75% of our business is through repeat customers or referrals.
Our company was founded in 1988 and has been growing ever since. It began in Oriental, NC (right across from the Oriental Marina) with Len Anderson and Susan Sanders at the helm.
In 1993, Susan and Len packed up and moved Harbor Specialties to Georgetown, SC in the old bank building across from the River Room Restaurant on Front Street. The business really grew in Georgetown!
Susan and Len got the wanderlust again in 1999 and packed up and moved to 143 East Bay Street in Charleston. In October 2001, Len’s son Will and wife Donna opened Harbor Specialties #2 in the Hammock Shops of Pawleys Island, SC.
In 2005, Len and Susan sold the Charleston store to Elizabeth Joyce ( a loyal employee of 10 years) and opened Harbor Specialties #3 in Beaufort, NC (practically back to where they started!).
