Throughout the 20th century, the company opened up a handful of branches in Fairfax (1939), Crenshaw (1947), Lakewood (1952), North Hollywood (1955), West Covina (1957), and Redondo Beach (1959). After this, they expanded into San Diego and throughout Northern California during the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
The original downtown flagship store was closed in 1986 and replaced by a smaller store at Seventh Market Place. Despite this, other branch stores continued to open up throughout the late 80s and 90s. Although some of the underperforming stores had to be closed down.
In 2014, Waterbridge Capital, a New York-based real estate development and investment group helmed by Joel Schreiber, acquired the former Hamburger Department Store on Eighth Street and Broadway for about $130 million. They plan to turn the building into a creative campus in order to attract tech companies to rent out office space.
