End of an era for Leamington jewellers who are holding closing down sale before they retire
A family-run Leamington jewellers which has been trading in the town for 20 years will close for good once it has sold all of its current stock in a final sale which starts this coming weekend.
Colin and Sandie Scamp have been running Peter Stephan Jewellers at 98 Warwick Street since 2002 but they will retire from the jewellery business once the sale is over.
Colin, a qualified gemologist who has more than 45 years of experience in the industry, said: “Leamington is a wonderful, vibrant town.
"The people are so friendly here and we have felt incredibly welcome – we’ll miss it terribly.
“After long careers as jewellers, and working in retail for all our lives, we are ready to retire.
“We have thought long and hard about closing the store and it’s been an incredibly difficult decision particularly because the most enjoyable aspect of the business is the people that we meet - many of whom have become good friends.
“For us, the time is right, and we are very much looking forward to spending time with our family, particularly our grandchildren.
"We hope our customers will take this final opportunity to buy a piece that they can treasure from our high-quality collection.”
The sale launches on Saturday (November 19) at 10am.
All jewellery in the sale will be reduced by 50 per cent with items being sold on a first come, first served basis.
