Sole check

After 41 years taking care of the well-shod feet in Bloomfield by polishing, resoling and repairing shoes, Matthew Kim of Bloomfield Plaza Shoe Repair in Bloomfield Plaza at Maple and Telegraph quietly closed up his shoe kit on December 31. A notice on the door of the establishment said, “Gone south!” He said he had closed to move permanently to Florida to care for his parents. Those in desperate need of repair services can once again turn to Frank’s Shoe Service, for over 60 years located in downtown Birmingham by Frank Konjarevich, now reopened at 43227 Woodward Avenue just north of Square Lake in the Kingswood Plaza shopping center in Bloomfield Township. Frank’s son, Frank Konjarevich Jr., who worked with his dad for decades, is running the new joint.
