Malden Mayor Gary Christenson congratulated a downtown store owner for a half-century in business.
Herbert Solup of Solup's Shoe Case celebrated 50 years in business at his 130 Pleasant St. location.
"For as long as I can remember, Solup’s has been a part of Malden’s business community," Christenson said. "50 years in business is a wonderful accomplishment for this family-owned company."
The store opened in 1962 and specializes in diabetic and orthopedic shoes, in addition to shoe repair.
