About Us

This is the oldest family photo we have of Peck’s taken in front of the original store in Harlem in 1913. The man in the photo is the founder, Jacob Peck In those years the store was both Sporting Goods & Stationery.
This photo was taken in 1923 of the Harlem Store which was located on St. Nicholas Avenue and 125th Street. The little boy in the photo is Irwin Peck, who
ran the company for 40years before handing the reins over to Robert, the current President. In those days fountain pens and ink were the biggest items. Peck’s also had a fountain pen repair dept.. The hand
painted sign in the right window says, “Cigars Canes”
In 1929, Herman Peck,the 2nd generation, moved the store from Harlem to Main Street  Flushing, where the business remained and thrived for 78 years.
This picture was taken in 1952. Staff was assembled to move the business across the street to a bigger store.
Herman Peck and his son Irwin Peck in 1952 before the store moved across the street.  Irwin started working with his father when he returned from WWII in Dec. 1945.

Peck’s remained in the new store for  55 years, from 1952 to 2007.  In the early 1960’s  Peck’s took over the Singer Sewing Machine Store and occupied the entire building.  Peck’s continued to expand and grow it’s commercial business.

Robert Peck, the president decides to make a bold move and make a major shift in the company.  Both retail stores were open 7 days a week and the work load of maintaining two stores was draining on Robert’s lifestyle. With commercial sales of office products and furniture continually growing, Robert makes the bold decision to forgo the retail end of their business, which accounted more than half their volume, and become exclusively commercial.   In 2007 Peck’s closes the Main Street store and moves to a modern warehouse in Brooklyn NY.
