If I were you, I'd contact the Reference Department of the Niagara Falls Library using the link below and ask the librarian to check the Vernon's Directory for the city of Niagara Falls for the year 1911 and a couple of years before and after for the name of the general store run by your ancestor, Edward (Ted) Corby, at 334 Portage Rd, Falls View Village.

Hi, many thank for the reply. I have contacted the N.F.library and the Niagara Falls Museum and was not able to find anything about the name of the general store. If you have any other suggestions I would appreciate hearing them.
Thank you for the generosity of your time and knowledge.
