About Us

It's our 70th anniversary!

How long is 70 years for a business?

To put it into perspective, Edwards has been in business 30 years longer than Apple, 46 years longer than Amazon, and 58 years longer than Facebook!

It takes something special to run a business for 70 years. It doesn't happen by chance. What began with a small store in San Mateo, California in 1946 (see picture below) has become four upscale San Francisco Bay Area stores, and our website. Through the years, we've maintained a simple mission: provide our customers with the finest quality travel products, and back it up with exceptional customer service. Because of this unwavering commitment, our customers continue to shop with us, regardless of the options they may have in the digital age. Recognized for many years as the premier destination for travel products on the west coast, Edwards will continue helping customers with Everything to make their Travel easier!
   
* Since 1946 we've been awarded Retailer of the Year by most of the top travelgoods manufacturers, including TUMI, Victorinox and Eagle Creek.
