A Fattorini, the oldest jewellery store in the town of Harrogate has announced that it will close permanently after almost 190 years of trading.
The closure is due to the retirement of the store owner, Anthony Tindall.
As a result of the closing down, the store is currently offering up to 50% off all diamonds, coloured gemstones, pearls and gold.
There is also a selection of Meister Singer, Oris, Frederique Constant, Bruno Sohnle and Maurice Lacroix watches available at half price.
Tindall told local paper the Telegraph and Argus: “I have mixed feelings about retiring. The decision to close the store has been incredibly tough. It’s undoubtedly the end of an era for Harrogate and for our family.
“I have loved my time in the business and am going to miss the customers, many who have been coming into the store for many years to purchase special and sentimental pieces. A lot of people will miss it.”
He added: “A lot of people contacted us who were Bradford customers. People do come for a nice day out in Harrogate from Bradford to see us.”
