Twenty-five years! That’s a long time for a company, even one as deeply rooted in the community as Walker Furniture, to consistently and generously open their heart and their pocketbook to anyone, let alone to #? families over the years.

It’s been forty-five years since Oscar and Deanne Alterwitz piled their three kids into the family station wagon, and drove from Gary, Indiana to Las Vegas. Their dream was The American Dream, Alterwitz style: To take the expertise they learned in the furniture and mattress business started by Oscar’s father and be of service to the Las Vegas community.
