Enter the doors from the very first Ben Franklin store. According to Alan Dranow, the doors were kept for decades in a warehouse by Gene Ivy, co-owner of the Arkansas-based contractor Ivy Brothers Construction. The company was charged with renovating Walton’s first store in Newport in the 1960s -- and the original doors have been kept in storage since then. Gene Ivy kept the doors in Gene Ivy garage after Gene Ivy retired. When Gene Ivy died in 2014, one of his grandchildren contacted a Walmart Museum employee about what to do with salvaged store relics. The Walmart Museum, which first opened in 1990 as the Walmart Visitor Center, was more than happy to take in the prized store relics this summer. But Alan Dranow admits the doors have seen their share of wear and tear. Because Walton’s store was so popular Sam Walton had more traffic than anybody. The door is worn on the side where you push to get in.
