"My Uncle Jimmie (Vincent Long) owned the store on 8th and Morton Ave. In Chester. The picture I am sending you is the front of the store in 1956. My Uncle eventually sold the store to my father Peter J. Pepe Sr. My father and mother Theresa (Palma) Pepe ran the store until it closed. We lived behind the store most of our lives until we moved to Swarthmore. Theresa and Peter have two sons, me and my brother Martin A. Pepe, both graduates of St. James High School. The store sold hoagies, steaks sandwiches, some groceries, tasty cakes, luncheon meats, bread, milk soda's. The store started out as a grocery store but because we lived close to the ship yard they started making sandwiches then became hoagie as one of the first hoagie shops in Chester."

- Thanks to Peter J. Pepe, Jr.
