It is an end of an era for Algoma and Rio Creek residents after the owners of Walter’s Do-It Best stores announced Thursday it had been sold. Don and Wendy Walter owned the stores for over 60 years before selling their operations to Door County Cooperative. Brenda Nimmer has fond memories of getting off the bus in front of the Rio Creek store to help her parents. With nobody else in the family to run the store in the future, Nimmer says the opportunity to sell was too important to pass up.
After “serving you best” for three generations, Nimmer says no jobs will be lost as a result of the sale.
