Our History

Parron Hall’s history has roots back to 1947 when D.R. Parron and Stanley Hall incorporated their fledgling company. Then in 1964, Mara-Long- Marsh merged with Parron Hall. Assuming the Parron Hall name, Mara-Long- Marsh’s owners L.B. Herr III and Robert Long were then partnered with Charles G. Hall, known as Skip to his friends, and son of Parron Hall’s founder Stanley Hall. The merger established the Herrs’ interest in a company that would become an industry leader in the San Diego market.

Following the premature death of Skip Hall in 1972, L.B. Herr III acquired majority interest in Parron Hall. In 1978, Jim Herr joined the company and in 1988 assumed control from his father. Under Jim Herr’s leadership, Parron Hall has grown from $6 million in annual sales to sales between $30 and $40 million in recent years.

Parron Hall was originally on 7th Avenue and moved to the corner of 2nd and “C”, now the current home of the Civic Center. From there, Parron Hall was located at 820 West Ash Street (pictured) for 58 years, also known as the A-1 Globe Flour Mill, and was a well-established and distinguished presence in the downtown area. The building was extensively renovated, preserving the historical architecture and has since been designated as San Diego’s 257th Historic Site.

In 2005, Parron Hall relocated to 7700 Ronson Road in Kearny Mesa. The central location and the new facility better positioned the dealership to serve the growth of San Diego County and its surrounding communities. A move down the street to 9655 Granite Ridge Drive in 2015 enables Parron Hall to continue to serve our community with an updated showroom that implements state of the art technology and the latest design developments in workplace solutions. And after nearly 70 years of being in business, Parron Hall continues to grow and thrive and is recognized as one of San Diego’s largest privately owned companies by the San Diego Business Journal. We are one of Knoll and DIRTT’s premier dealerships in country.
