Lamey Wellehan celebrates centennial

Auburn, ME-based shoe seller Lamey Wellehan, which has six retail locations in the state, will mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of its first store on March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, in Lewiston. The company will celebrate its centennial with a yearlong schedule of events, including door prizes, vendor days, and sales.

Lamey Wellehan emphasizes proper fitting and employs five staff pedorthists and trains all its sales associates in its mandatory fitting curriculum.

Still owned by original founder’s descendants, Lamey Wellehan attributes its growth to the company’s commitment to community and the environment. Its involvement has included donating 10,000 gently worn shoes to the state’s homeless, expanding green practices in its stores and offices, and sponsoring a college scholarship for a Maine high school senior to attend a state college or university to study ecology or economics.
