      Marquette County business to close its doors...forever

      Another Upper Michigan business is closing its doors after Walker Furniture, Mattress and Sleep Center on Marquette County Road 553 made the announcement Thursday.

      According to owners Rick and Joan McCarthy, the store will be closed and the real estate sold. What prompted the sale? The couple says that they plan to retire.

      Rock and Joan have owned and operated the location since 1998, but announced that the location will close following a "going out of business" sale.
