Yocom Brothers Company


Dry Goods Store Has Fine Record for Fair Business Dealing

The Yocom Brothers store, now operated as the Yocom Brothers Company, was established in Oberlin in 1906 by E. K. Yocom and his brother J. D. Yocom, both leading citizens here for many years. E. K. Yocom, banker and business man and a leader in the First M. E. Church, died a few years ago as did also his brother J. D. Yocom, for three terms mayor of Oberlin and active in church and civic affairs. The business is now actively conducted for the heirs of the original founders by Ernest Yocom and Herbert Yocom, sons of E. K. Yocom. Both the present managers are worthy descendants of their father and the store has always had a reputation for strict honesty in business and for courteous consideration for the interests of customers.
