96-year-old store owner becoming famous

Posted:

MARSHFIELD (WKOW) -- A Marshfield woman say she's overwhelmed with all the attention she's received after she stopped a man from robbing her store.

96-year-old Marge Wolf refused to give money to a masked man who came into her store Monday.

Since then, her story has gone nationwide, appearing on ABC's World News, CNN and PeopleMagazine.com.

Marge says her phone hasn't stopped ringing and her door hasn't stopped swinging.

"They come in and say, Marge, you look the same. Do you know who I am?' I say 'No.' So they tell me. Well that's been 10-20 years since."

Wolf has owned her store in Marshfield for about 50 years.
