According to Shaf-Brener, Yakov Garber, a tanner, lived in Skuodas with his family.
According to JewishGen’s Lithuania database, there were Garbers in Skuodas from the 1840s. According to the Marriages database, Yankel Garber, a worker, son of Feivel and Cesne (nee Rubin), born in 1890, married Feiga Sher in Skuodas in 1939. The Lithuania Deaths database indicates that Feivel Gerber, son of Motel and Malka, a glassmaker, died age 80 in 1933.
Yad Vashem has this to say about the Garber family of Shkud:
Jakob Garbar was born in Skud, Lithuania in 1892 to Sraga and Tzesna. He was a tinsmith. Prior to WWII he lived in Skud, Lithuania. During the war he was in Skud, Lithuania. Jakob was murdered in the Shoah. This information is based on a Page of Testimony submitted by his brother.http://db.yadvashem.org/names/nameDetails.html?itemId=918004&language=en

A comment in a collection of memoirs by present-day Skuodas inhabitants reads, “Judelman had a small leather factory on Basanaviciaus Street. … In the courtyard of this factory there was a leather tannery with a terrible smell. Lithuanians called Judelman “garborius,” that is, currier” (“Jews in the Memory of Skuodas People” 9; see link to right). Could this be a reference to Yakov Garber, who was a tanner?
