H. Krug Furniture

Yesterday’s post featured a close up of the two flags flying above H. Krug Furniture on Ahrens Street in Kitchener. This picture was taken from the parking lot of the Kitchener Train Station on Weber Street West. Hartman Krug founded this furniture business in 1880 in Berlin, Ontario. You can read more of the company’s history on their website.

  2. My nephew has worked here for years but I have never been in the building. This is one old business that continues to do well.

  3. That’s cool. I have an oak office desk and chair that is pre-1970. It’s nice to see a picture of where it might have been made. Nice picture.
