Three generations of Farber family ownership have established Hunt's as a trendsetter in the imaging equipment industry. Begun as a Malden Center drugstore by pharmacist Solomon Farber and his sons, Hunt's began building its camera business during the 1950s under the visionary leadership of Solomon's son, Jack. As interest in photography grew and small neighborhood pharmacies fell victim to big national chains, Hunt's began shifting its emphasis away from the pharmacy business and into the business of cameras and accessories. By 1992, the pharmacy closed and imaging equipment became Hunt's primary focus.
Led today by Jack's sons, Scott and Gary, Hunt's proudly serves a diverse audience of individual, corporate, educational, and government clients as one of the country's largest retailers of photographic, video and digital imaging products. As sponsor of the renowned Hunt's Show and Sale each fall, the company hosts a three-day showcase of the latest trends in photographic equipment for users at all levels.
