In 1972, Patricia Fischer (then 17) and her high school friend took $900 in startup money and founded their first store. The daughter of local merchants, Patti had retail in her blood. After spending a few years in Metairie and Mid-City painting ceramic plaques, the company moved to St. Louis Street in the French Quarter. In this new location, they expanded their offerings and began selling souvenirs, t-shirts, and sports memorabilia. Not long after, Patti moved to the current location on Royal Street and founded what we now know as Fischer-Gambino. Laurie LaBruzzo joined up with Patti in 1999 to open an additional location in Metairie. This second store has grown to offer lighting, furniture, and a full-service design center for specialized, individual attention.
Fischer-Gambino is one of the premier lighting and furniture stores in the Southeast and a must-see for locals and tourists alike. With this new website, they hope to re-create the atmosphere and energy found in their retail locations while simultaneously providing a convenient way of shopping from the comfort of your home.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy our selection of specialized, hand-picked items that are sure to provide an eclectic, unique, and authentic Fischer-Gambino shopping experience!
