Hollister California — the City, the Saddle
Hollister, Calif.–When Hollister name began appearing in stores throughout the US, locals laughed and said that the image of surfing and waves was nice, but it didn’t exactly capture the flavor of a small community in Central California. And, when the clothing chain named Hollister contacted the town and its merchants, it said they had to stop using their own name. Now that’s a rub!
Hollister, the city, actually is a quaint place full of charm, though it isn’t on the Pacific Ocean and nothing about it resembles the broadcasts of oceans and surfing pumped into stores where mostly youthful clothes are sold.
But something quite unique about Hollister (the city), is a totally different product for a unique demographic. Corbin carries a full line of motorcycle saddles and accessories for nearly all motorcycle makes and models, including custom bikes. Take a free self-guided Corbin walking tour Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. and on Sat. 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. of this amazing place. Now this is the REAL Hollister you won’t see anywhere else!
