Over 100 years! That’s right, that’s a long time. How does a local business last so long and become what it is today? It all comes down to local people that care about being a part of the local community. The Wharf began in 1916 as a warehouse company at the foot of the Ventura pier, storing and selling products brought in by ship and train. Since, The Wharf has evolved with the city, supplying ranch and pet supplies in the 20’s and 30’s and later bringing in apparel and footwear in the 60’s and 70’s. Now, The Wharf has a unique collection of quality merchandise and brands that bring people to Ventura from miles around. But along this evolution, the one constant has been a locally owned and operated, community based business that is a local landmark.
