A jewelry store in the U.K. is closing its doors after 228 years in business.

Andrew Campin, owner of Martin Wilkinson Jewellers, located in the town of Mansfield in Nottinghamshire, England, is retiring, the Nottingham Post reports. He said there’s no one to take over the business, as his three children are involved in other careers.

Campin started working at Martin Wilkinson in 1968. His father, Edgar William Campin, had taken over the business in the late 1930s.

“I started work in the jewellery industry over 60 years ago and it will be a sad day when I close the family business for the final time.” Andrew Campin said.

The store’s history dates to 1794, when it was called Coral.

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
