廣德号,创办于1836 年。

种福田 高望重

第一代掌柜胡福英,在中国广东省新会县,创立廣德号, 后来第二代胡广森越洋到马来西亚发展,到槟城创立新街的廣德号。第三代传人则为胡诚恩,历经百年岁月,传到第四代的胡氏六兄弟一起打理。

廣德号是百年的金字招牌,货真价实童无欺,售卖的是唐洋杂货。唐杂货是指来自中国的货品,主要是腊味海味,罐头食品, 茶酒及干料。洋杂货则是来自西洋国家的坚果,酱料及洋酒。

1980年,胡氏兄弟将店铺注册成为有限公司,成了“廣德酒业杂货有限公司”,以方便生意运作,传统家族生意有了进一部的提升。2015 年四月一号,消費稅落实,柜台上也安置了一套新电脑,改变了老算盘作业。

如今掌柜是第四代传人胡锡球(94岁),胡树球 (90岁)其子胡国豪以及胡家子孙们(第五、六代)接力将家族生意带到现代化网络,誓把老祖宗留下的事业再创辉煌。
