Dems Fine Jewelers: 1068 Lake Murray Boulevard: April-ish 2023   no comments

Posted at 11:43 pm in closing







Dems on Lake Murray Boulevard is closing on the retirement of the owners.

According to ColaDaily, they have been in business for 54 years, and that's certainly a very good run. The owners also state they are open to the building continuing as a jewelers with another name and owners, but apparently there is nothing definite on tap.

I remember the place as Dems House Of Diamonds from radio ads growing up, and they were still operating under that name in their Boozer Shopping Center storefront. They moved from that location to the current one in 2004.

There is no definite closing date as it all depends on the inventory, but the ColaDaily piece suggests the closing sale could last into April.

Palmetto Interiors / Heathcliff's Jewelers, 1000 Gervais Street: Summer 2023   1 comment

Posted at 11:04 pm in closing



I wasn't aware of Heathcliff's Jewelers in the vista, until commener Justin mentioned that their building was up for sale.

While I was googling them (and not finding much information), I did turn up a photo of the block which appears to have been taken in the 1970s, and is interesting. The copyright is unclear, so I'm not embedding it, but take a look at the building when it was Palmetto Interiors.

Lexington Jewelers, 134 East Main Street: 24 December 2021   no comments

Posted at 10:55 pm in closing


Here's a closing I just happened to notice during a drive-by the other day, but which happened late last year.

Lexington Jewelers in downtown Lexington closed on Christmas Eve of 2021 due to the retirement of the owner, who had been running the place for almost 40 years. You can read about it in The State or The Post & Courier.
