Hager Cabinets: four people around a kitchen island smiling at the cameraHager Cabinets is a family-owned business that began in 1967 when Bob and Oberita Hager moved from West Virginia to Richmond where Oberita had accepted a doctoral teaching position at Eastern Kentucky University. Bob enrolled in a drafting course at EKU and Oberita encouraged him to draw plans and build them a home. Soon Bob’s college professor asked Bob to build him a home, and this was followed by the same request from the Dean of the Industrial Arts Department at EKU. Bob Hager Builder was born, and with it a partnership with Aristokraft Cabinets, so only the best cabinets would be featured in Hager homes.

In 1969, as the business continued to grow, Bob and Oberita opened a cabinet warehouse and showroom on Irvine Street in Downtown Richmond, naming it Hager Cabinets. Four years later they moved to 474 Eastern Bypass and expanded their inventory to include building materials, brick, windows, doors, flooring, lights, and appliances.

In 1994, Bob and Oberita opened Hager Cabinets and Appliances in Lexington. Daughter Linda Hager Pack continues to carry on the family tradition in the business, honoring her parents’ legacy. In 2019, she supervised the construction of Hager Cabinets Showroom in Richmond.
