Longtime Local Jewelry Shop to Close Its Doors

By  | 

A popular College Station jewelry store has been a gem to many, but is closing up shop.

The owners of Douglas Jewelers are retiring and closing the business. As a result, the store on University Drive was packed with Christmas shoppers and those looking for a deal. The jewelry store has been open almost 50 years, but Ronnie and Sandy Arrington say they're closing their doors to spend more time with family.

Sandra Arrington's parents opened Edward's Jewelers in the early 60's, which later became Douglas Jewelers.

Since then they have operated in several locations and have served thousands of customers.
