Jewelry Store Closing After 60+ Years … But There’s a Twist

There’s good news.

As Scoville Jewelers in downtown Glens Falls, NY, closes its doors, another jeweler plans to take its place.

Regional chain Northeastern Fine Jewelry plans to open in the space, with a grand opening to be held in February, the Glens Falls Post-Star reports.

The newspaper reported in November that Scoville Jewelers would close, with the owners to retire. Husband-and-wife Chris Scoville and Debra Vales planned to travel worldwide to “search for an eventual winter residence on par with their summer home in Lake George,” according to the Post-Star.

The business opened in 1952 with Scoville’s parents at the helm. When the closing was announced, Scoville said the couple would hold onto the buildng and rent it out.

And that’s what he did.

Northeastern Fine Jewelry has signed on for a five-year lease, and a renovation is now planned.

The newspaper quoted Scoville saying: “We are thrilled that they will provide our customers with the highest quality items and services, while continuing the tradition of a family-owned jeweler at our former location.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
