The house was founded in 1896 by Johann Garhammer on the market square of Waldkirchen. At the end of the Second World War, the building was destroyed (as was the neighboring town church ). Reconstruction began after the war. In 1987 the company had 170 employees and 3700 square meters of retail space.

In 2013, 15 million euros were invested in the extensive expansion of the fashion house. The architectural office Blocher Blocher Partners designed a modern building with integration in the west into the listed ring wall (around 1460) and in the east into the old town, which is under ensemble protection . The sales area was increased by almost 3,000 to 9,000 square meters. The Johanns restaurant (named after the company's founder), which opened after the renovation in the roof area, was awarded a Michelin star in 2014 under Michael Simon Reis .


Regular customers of the fashion house come from all over Bavaria and nearby Austria. There are over 70,000 customer cards, up to 4,000 are added annually. According to the company, more than 1000 people in Munich shop at Garhammer at least twice a year with their customer card. 3000 regular customers come from Austria.

2014, the fashion house was the trade association Germany for Store of the Year chosen. The jury praised the exemplary integration of the listed ring wall (1460–1470) into the building. In the same year, the fashion house was one of the six nominees for the World Retail Award in the category of houses with over 1200 square meters .
