The KKK Store Klamath Falls, Oregon

While looking for a subject not related to the KKK, I came across these ads for the KKK Store in Klamath Falls, Oregon.  From what I can understand the KKK stood for  Klamath Klothing Kompany located at 537 Main St. Klamath Falls, Oregon.  It was established in 1901 by Fred Houston. He later sold it to K. Sugarman in 1934 and he operated it until 1945. K. Sugarman’s motto, “I Ain’t Mad At Nobody" .  So, did Fred Houston force the name of the company to come out KKK or was it an accident?  Certainly in the 1915 to 1930 period the KKK was a big factor in politics.
