"The Superior Public Library provided me with a picture of the Popkin building.
I believe the building is still standing, though long vacant." - Jeff Missinne

"The TV commercial frame you have on your web page is not the Popkin Furniture store in Superior, WI.
I believe it may be of a store in Richmond, Virginia; no idea if the families are related.
I can't remember Popkin's in Superior ever doing any TV advertising,
though they were a regular presence in the newspaper for decades." - Jeff Missinne
