Lipsitz Shoes


828 Bay Street
Beaufort, SC


In 1998, Neil Lipsitz (1959- ), son of Lipsitz Department Store owners Joseph Lipsitz (1920-2014) and Lucille Bass Lipsitz (1930- ), opened Lipsitz Shoes at 828 Bay Street, across from Lipsitz Department Store. After more than twelve years in business, Lipsitz Shoes closed in 2011. Lipsitz began a term on the Beaufort City Council in 2020, and previously served as a docent at the Beaufort History Museum.

The Jewish Merchant Project is supported by the generosity of the Henry & Sylvia Yaschik Foundation and the Stanley B. Farbstein Endowment at the Coastal Community Foundation.
