Volkmann’s Buy Alta’s Business (1955) 

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Volkmann, both of whom are widely known in Neillsville and southern Clark County, this week are completing arrangements for the purchase of Alta’s ready-to-wear store in Neillsville.  They expect to assume ownership Friday, July 1. 

Management of the shop will be taken by Mrs. Volkmann, the former Ruby Frantz, who will be remembered as the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Frantz of Neillsville.  The Volkmanns have moved back to Neillsville and are now settling in the old Zimmerman home on Hewett Street, recently occupied by the Rebers, which they have purchased. 

For the last few years the Volkmanns have made their home in Western Springs, Ill., a suburb of Chicago.  Mr. Volkmann was connected with Nuken Products Corporation.  Prior to that they lived for a time in Norwalk, Conn., where Mr. Volkmann superintended the construction and operation of a plant for the Litheote Corp., by which he was employed for 17 years. 

For a short period after the war the Volkmanns resided in Neillsville.  They then operated the cabins on the south edge of the city.
