A few months back, I spoke to the owner of Garry Jeweler's. The store had been closed for a while because of his ill health, and, just as he was getting back on his feet, his mother became ill. I've seen no sign of activity since then, and am guessing it may be permanently shut down. This will be a real shame - it's a 1950's gem of a store, inside and out, and the store's proprietors were always friendly and helpful. When you went in, it seemed cavernous, with the shelves far too empty for comfort. I wish I had known it in busier days.
