Walter's Women's Wear

The first Walter’s Women’s Wear opened in July of 1955 at 115 South Main Street. The store was formerly known as Zollie Vida’s. Walter’s was owned by Mr & Mrs Walter Feldman. In 1961 they leased the Bon Bon Store across the street at 114 South Main and opened as Walter’s Bon Bon. Additional departments were added including a Children’s Dept, Lingerie  and shoe department. In April of 1964, Walter’s expanded to a second location in the Town & Country Shopping Center. In March of 1974, Walter’s added The Attic to the downtown store. The Attic featured styles for young, juniors and teens.

  1. I shopped at the attic. Actually got a couple of prom dresses there. They sold my favorite jeans too.

  2. The original owners of the store were Minot furriers named Zollie and Vida Gordan. They were neighbors who lived on 4th Ave NW. They sold to the Feldman's (for whom I worked) and the store was called The Bon Ton. Later they owned Walter's Women's Wear and partnered with Elliot Obedin in The Other Place on Central Avenue in the early 70s'.
