About us

Portsmouth Armie Navie Store is a family owned and operated business. We specialize in military surplus, big & tall clothing, work gear, and street fashion. 

It all started in 1946 when our founder, Joe Frank, returned from serving in the Army during WWII. After purchasing a corner grocery store, he slowly expanded into housewares, then gloves,shoes, and used work clothes. During the late 1960's it became obvious that the neighborhood grocery was on the way out and the expansion into work clothes began. Within a short time, we became all clothing and footwear and are now are proud to be a supplier to the Military nationwide as well as local government agencies and civilians. With the help of our supplier partners, we are capable of providing extreme service at competitive pricing.

Today, we still pride ourselves on customer service and low prices. Customers and community are what have kept our doors open and will continue to be at the heart of our business.
