Congrats to Berger Bros.

Berger-Magic_SQ_125.jpgCongratulations to our friends at Berger Brothers, who have a few milestones in mind as they begin the new year. For starters, the Long Island, New York based camera store will be celebrating their 64th year (established in 1951).

Berger-Bros.jpgIt all started with a store specializing in musical instruments and sporting equipment, but soon the Berger family developed (literally) an interest in photography. They shifted to featuring cameras, lenses and photography related accessories. This shift in store inventory came precisely at the time when the domain of photography was rapidly expanding to serious amateurs and average households.

Berger Brothers helped boost that expansion by offering the latest in the new cameras coming from all corners of the globe. While helping with the growth of the home and amateur photography arena, they maintained a firm foothold in sales and service to the professionals of the day.

Berger-150.jpgBuilding on their reputation of customer service, Berger Brothers advanced to today's digital age under the stewardship of Brad Berger, who is now entering his 41st year at the helm.

His philosophy through those years can be found on the Berger Brothers Web Site history page:
"Brad has expanded our inventory, but has never forgotten what the family drilled into him from an early age - customer service comes first. The Berger Brothers dream has never been to be the largest camera store in New York. Just the best."

In addition, one more milestone:
This year marks the fifth anniversary of the partnership with our Nikonians community, which is now best known as our popular Ask Berger Bros Camera Forum!
Through the past five years, Brad and his team have supported our community with purchasing specials, photography articles and informative links to training videos.

Now serving their third generation of customers in two locations (plus a Photography School) as well as the wide world of Internet sales and service, Berger Brothers is handily keeping up with modern technological improvements, and defiantly refusing to give up on old-fashioned standards:

To quote Brad: "We still believe in offering a good value, in standing behind the sale, and that courtesy and customer service comes first - that if you're happy with your purchase you'll come back."
