J.D. Hornberger, Owner

A keen interest in high-end retail began when J.D. Hornberger, (now) owner of Port O'Call, worked through college for Brooks Brothers in downtown Los Angeles. It was there he received his training on providing excellent customer service, attention to detail and appreciation for well-made clothing and products. His love for delighting the customer and building lasting customer relationships flourished during that time.  In 1989 he started JDH & Company that specialized in selling gifts and stationery to corporations and businesses.  His business grew and in 1996 he purchased Port O’Call which at the time was located in Pasadena.  In 1999 the Pasadena store closed and remained closed until 2017 when J.D. and Suzy Crowell reopened the store on Mission Street in San Marino.
