About This Company

Eugene Ferkauf was a Jewish WWII veteran who understood that people like to buy things cheaper, and he set out to let them do just that by founding E.J. Korvette's.  In 1948 he founded E.J. Korvette's (no, the name did not stand for 'Eleven Jewish Korean Veterans.' According to Ferkauf, 'I had a name picked out for the store, E.J. Korvette. ''E'' is for Eugene, my first name, and ''J'' stands for Joe Swillenberg, my associate and my pal. As for ''Korvette,'' it was originally meant to be spelled with a ''C'' after the Canadian marine sub-destroyer, simply because I thought the name had a euphonious ring. When it came time to register the name, we found it was illegal to use a naval class identity, so we had to change the spelling to ''K''). This company is generally cited as being the first of the discount stores that did not have a 5-and-dime root. Korvette's was soon joined by numerous other discount stores such as Zayres, Arlans and Gibson's. For many consumers, drawn by generally lower prices despite the low service, these large stores were exciting arrivals in the new shopping centers and suburban tracks that were appearing around all the old urban centers in the 1950s.
