The fife based family firm is enjoying welcoming customers into store with a new shop facade to celebrate the 50th milestone birthday, with in store offers and celebrations taking place up until Christmas.

Sophie Jessop, Director, said: “We are both delighted to celebrate our 50th anniversary with a bespoke new shop front (installed by the incredible Gill Segar of iCatcha Displays Ltd) and help our customers mark their own special occasions; from proposals to golden wedding anniversaries, births and birthdays. It’s a milestone age for any business, especially in a “new town” and in the challenging retail industry. We highly value all our wonderful and loyal customers, new and old (many of whom have shopped with us since the very beginning).
She continues: “Whilst retail sales continues to grow post re-opening, our jewellery and watch repairs department has experienced record months. On site repairs Manager Anita Munro adds “our customers are certainly more nostalgic post pandemic” she went on to explain “from re-designing inherited jewellery to restoring sentimental watches, our customers are eager to invest into the their own collection more than ever before; maintaining the sentiment and heirloom for generations to come”.
