Samuel S. Beaver built this store building in 1912. His business had been located directly across Market Street in a location that would eventually house the First National Bank Building.

E. Luther Beaver purchased the store from his brother Sam and operated the clothing store in Port Royal for over twenty years. Upon Luther's retirement he sold the business to Glen Kepner, Sr. who had formerly been co-owner of the Old Port Trading Post in Old Port, Turbett Township.

REMOVING TREES FROM IN FRONT OF STORE - As reported in Port Royal Times of February 24, 1965, "Highway employees removed the [buckeye-horse chestnut] trees in front of Kep's Clothing Store. These trees, along with all those on Market Street between 2nd and 4th streets were removed last Tuesday to provide better parking on the street," Kep's Clothing Store is on far left of the photo. Next is Mariette Shoppe and then Aumillers Market on the right. (Article courtesy of Wayne Taylor)
