Our History

History of Landau's Specialty Store
Landau is a 104 year old, family run (third generation) special, specialty store. Founded in 1914 by grandfather Henry Landau, moved to Princeton 64 years ago by parents Evelyn and David Landau, and is now run by brothers Henry and Robert Landau.

Nicknamed “The Wool Family” by the president of Iceland in 1982, Landau today offers unique and functional products from around the world at attractive prices with old-fashioned family-owned service.

Hard-to-find products, hard-to-beat prices and salespeople who actually respond to your personal needs… that’s what makes Landau special.

There is only one Landau, located at 102 Nassau Street in Princeton, NJ (opposite Princeton University), approximately one hour by car from New York City and Philadelphia.
