HAV Western Wear was founded in 1949 by three brothers: Hugo, Alfons and Victor. It started as a "farm store" stocking hardware, farming supplies and hiring out labor for small jobs.
After a few years, Hugo and Alphons decided to return to carpentry and farming themselves, leaving Victor with the Store.
Over the years, HAV evolved into a hardware and tack store, then to a tack and clothing store.
Victor used to joke about having to marry a woman with an "H" name to keep the store's initials correct. He married "Helen" in 1949.
Today, HAV Western wear carries quality clothing and accessories. It is owned by Victor's daughter, Vikki.
