1919 Upper Alton, Illinois
D. M. Kittinger, one of the oldest and most successful merchants in the city, closed a deal Saturday night, whereby he sold his merchandise business on College avenue to the McKee Brothers who took charge of the establishment this morning and will operate the same line of business which Mr. Kittinger conducted so many years. The changing hands of the Kittinger store in Upper Alton marks the passing of one of Alton's oldest business houses. The Kittinger firm had been in existence over thirty years but five years ago the old firm of D. B & p. M, Kittinger dissolved when D M. Kittinger bought out the interes of his cousin, P. B. Kittinger, and since that time D. M. had been in business single handed. Both these men were well known years ago in Alton's business circles. It Just happened that D. M. KIttinge was here from Florida when the name of Kittinger passes away from College avenue. He had been living in the south the last two or three year and recently he came back for a visit. He is in Upper Alton at the present time visiting with his cousin. When the latter sold out, the word that "Big Dan" had sold out passed around Upper Alton in a hurry. He had been telling his friends for the last year that he wanted to get out of the business but still his friends did not believe that he would sell when it came to the show down. Mr. Kittinger said today that he was surprised when he found out how very, much more the Upper Alton people were surprised that he would sell. Dan Kittinger commenced in the grocery line of work at the age of 19 years and he has been at it continuously ever since. He worked for the old firm of Webster & Waggoner forty-three years ago. Later on he engaged in business for himself and has been in business continuously ever since. He was a very hard worker and in the olden days when Upper Alton grocery stores stayed open half the night every night and most of the day on Sunday the grocery keepers hardly know what a day off meant. But during Dan Kittlnger's long experience in the business he had attended strictly to business and bis success was doubtless due to his hard work. Just what Mr. Kittinger will do from now on remains to be seen but with his farm in Florida, his interests in the oil fields of Oklahoma and with the business Interests he has In Alton outside of his store he will find plenty to devote his attention to. Mr, Kltttnger .is a director in the First Trust and Savings Bank and in the Alton Baking and Catering Co.
