in the hotel and operated the gift shop,
Bud worked two jobs: selling cars at a
local Ford dealership and selling
furnaces for an oil distributor.
A few years after they opened the gift
shop, the Ter Hars added clothing to
their inventory, and soon they became
a clothing store.
Because the apartment was, according
to Bud “too valuable a space to be
living in,” the Ter Hars moved in 1958
to a house in Gearhart, where Jean
continues to live. Bud died in 2009.
TER HAR’S is a clothing store in
Seaside and Cannon Beach. But more
than that, Ter Har’s is a family affair,
and it has been for over 64 years.
As the Ter Har family celebrates over
64 years in business, they recall when
Seaside was a town of vacant lots and
business was seasonal. Then, the
“season” then lasted four months a
year, and many stores were closed for
several months, Jeff recalled.
The Ter Har name became known in
the area in 1951, when the young Bud
and Jean Ter Har, fresh from Seattle,
bought the former Merriman Hotel in
Seaside. In addition to the three-story
hotel, the Ter Hars operated a small gift
store. Bud and Jean knew the gift
business: He had worked as a traveling
salesman for a gift company when the
couple lived in Seattle.
They lived in the back of the store for
seven years. While Jean rented rooms
The clothing store with the black-and-
white awning was torn down when
Trendwest Inc. bought it and other
property they owned along Broadway
and the Prom in 2001 to build its
condominium resorts. The Ter Hars
became owners of the first floor of the
building and not only continue to
operate their store in a Broadway
storefront, but rent out other storefronts
to businesses all the way to the Prom.
In addition to the Seaside store, they
have operated stores in Astoria and
Long Beach, Wash. In 1991, the Ter
Hars opened the Cannon beach store,
which continues to operate today.
In total, the Ter Hars own six
commercial buildings that have 34
different businesses operating in them.
All of the properties are in Clatsop
Jean and Bud always believed in
reinvesting in Seaside by opening other
storefronts. This
gives people
opportunities to
prosper in
Besides their
financial investment
in Clatsop County,
however, the Ter Hars also
invest their time in the community.
They often can be seen supporting
athletic teams and other student
organizations in the Seaside schools.
Bud, Peter and Jeff have had
associations with the Seaside
Downtown Development Association
and The Seaside Chamber of
Commerce (all three had a turn as
Chamber President).
With the business Jean, Jeff & Pavi are
able to work and contribute with the
Assistance League Columbia Pacific to
help clothe children in the county. Pavi
is an active member in Assistance
“It’s important not only for us to let our
customers have a good shopping
experience, but we’re also like a mini
chamber of commerce,” Jeff said.
“People need to know we have an
aquarium, a two-mile Prom and where
to get seafood.”
We’ve appreciated all of our employees
over the years, past and present, we
couldn’t have done it without your
dedicated contribution.
