The Kasilof Mercantile began as the “Kasilof Grocery” in 1959. It was run by Bill and Isabella Harris out of the supply shed next to the Kasilof Children’s Home on K-Beach road. They sold only what they could purchase in two annual case lots delivered from Seward.
Beginning in 1960, a new building was built in the current location and was added onto, piece-by-piece, by a succession of hard working and dedicated owners. It it’s time this building has served as a post office, feed store, residential home, and newest of all is as Alaska’s first outlet store for Alaskan Hardgear.
