The story

The bookstore was established on December 11, 1860 by Rudolph Holck. At that time the company was called Rudholph Holck, and here was also a state telegraph station and a war telegraph.

Rudolph Holck died on 30 November 1900, and on 16 April 1901 the bookshop was taken over by Niels Ehlert, and ever since it has been called Ehlerts Boghandel.

On October 1, 1940, the bookstore was taken over by Svend Kjøng Vestergaard, but in 1947 it was bought by Mogens Hald, and ever since, the bookstore has been owned by the Hald family.

In 1975, Carsten Hald took over the bookstore after the death of his father Mogens Hald.
