Hager Cabinets is a family-owned business and began its story in 1967 when Bob and Oberita Hager moved from West Virginia to Richmond, KY 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 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 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, KY and in 2019 their daughter, Linda, supervised the construction of Hager Cabinets Showroom in Richmond.
