Inscription.

The Montgomery Sisters occupied this tin-fronted building after they moved here in 1919 from their Petoskey Midway location. Gertrude and Mae Montgomery were widely known for their eclectic merchandise. They sold fancy goods and art pieces in this location for over forty years. In 1998 William and Marietta Shorter restored the building to its original character. J.W. Shorter and Son Mercantile opened as a specialty shop here in 1998.
