It’s always bittersweet when a local Michigan store closes after many years in business. On one hand, it’s nice that the community supported that shop for so many years, and I’m sure many good memories were made. On the other, it’s sad to see a local establishment close.

Now, a Michigan jewelry and gift shop is closing its doors after 24 years of service. It’s a beloved shop that many local families frequented for years.

That shop is Terry’s Jewelry and Gifts Inc. in Holt. The owners recently took to Facebook to announce the news. They also shared that they are having a big liquidation sale, because everything has to go.

“I’m sure most of you have heard that Terry’s Jewelry and staff are retiring and having a HUGE LIQUIDATION SALE, BUT you may not know we have extended our hours throughout this closing sale,” they stated on Facebook. “The hours are 10 a m – 5 pm Mondays through Saturdays. Yes even Saturdays. Everything must go. So don’t wait to shop this once in a lifetime Jewelry barging (sic) sale. See you all soon. Thanks for all the community support for 24 years. Terry.” More information about the shop can be found at Facebook.com/TerrysJewelryandGifts.
