Old Webster Jewelers Going Out of Business
All fine jewelry in the store is up to 60-percent off and all fixtures are on sales as well. The store will be open until all inventory is sold. This is the third local Webster business to close in recent months.
Some sad news for patrons of Old Webster Jewelers. The company is shuttering its doors as soon as all of its inventory is sold.
The owners of the shop, Linda and Gary Mann, have decided to close the business in Old Webster at the corner of W. Lockwood and S. Gore avenues. Linda is experiencing health problems, and Gary, who recently turned 65, is retiring.
The Manns' bought the store 10 years ago from Batsch Jewelers, which opened at that location in 1946. In an interview Monday, the Manns' told Patch Kenary Florists will be moving into the prime corner spot after their store closes.
All merchandise is marked down as much as 60 percent as part of the going-out-of business sale. The store sells fine jewelry and watches, bridal and fashion jewelry, as well as loose diamonds. Prices range from $50 to $5,000.
This is the third longtime Webster Groves business to close its doors this year. Webster Records went out of business in January, and Ben Franklin, which has been in Old Orchard for 30 years, will also be closing soon.
