I* well as a power in its commercial

[? and loved him. and he was justly
:? famed for his charitv and kindli
|! ness as a man. and for the high
p minded principles and loft\ ideals
i* evidenced in hi^ every business
An old Ashevillian oner remark
ed that Solomon Lipinsky started in
business in his humble store on old
South Main Street w ith nothing but
a pood name ? and it was beeause
he eherished a pood name more than
any other stock in trade that he so
rapidly pained ? and held the con
fidence of the people of western
North Carolina ? the one thing that
made possible the amazing forward
strides his business made.
In 1889, the business was housed
in a modest building on South Main
Street, and had a $25,000 volume
of business. The years 1893 and
1897 witnessed the first two ad
vancements made by the store, when
it made moves to larger, more cen
trally located quarters. In twenty
years, the volume of business grew
to SI 40,000 annually.
lln 1911. the store moved to the
heart of the business district on Pat
ton Avenue, where it remained un
til November of 1923, when the
company moved to its new home
where it will celebrate its thirty
ninth anniversary. In 1928, the
volume of business recorded
amounted to a little more than a
million and a half.
The management of the store still
continues in the Lipinsky family,
with the three sons of Solomon Lip
insky holding executive reins. Mor
ris is president and general mana
ger; White vice-president and su
perintendent; Louis is merchandise
In celebration of the stores thir
ty-ninth anniversary, a month-long
merchandising event is to be staged;
embracing all the power, the energy,
and experience of their entire or
ganization. For months past, their
buyers have been scouring the east
ern markets in preparation for this
great event, and the month promis
es to eclipse pny other month in the
sales history of the store.
