Bove Jewelers to close in Kennett Square
By Steven Hoffman
Bove Jewelers has announced that it is closing its doors after 86 years of business in Kennett Square.
A going-out-of business sale will begin and is expected to last over the next several months.
Current owner George Reinas is retiring, and he is going to be missed by the Kennett Square business community.
“We're sad to see George go,” said Historic Kennett Square executive director Mary Hutchins. “Bove Jewelers has certainly been an important part of the town's revitalization process.”
Located at 124 West State Street, Bove Jewelers traces its origins to 1929, when C.L. Thomas opened a store. Barbara Bove purchased the business in 1961 and ran it until 1993. Reinas purchased the business in 1993 and has been running it ever since.
Through the years, Bove Jewelers built its reputation on quality, service, and selection, specializing in fine jewelry, watches, diamonds, and giftware.
During the sale, Bove Jewelers will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 pm. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
