Family-Run G H Corlett Jewellers Closes for Good

Shoppers are bidding a tearful farewell to G H Corlett Jewellers as the much-loved family-run business closes its doors for the final time. After serving customers for an impressive 188 years, the jewellers made the difficult decision to shut up shop due to the rise of online shopping. The news was announced on social media last month, leaving many loyal customers feeling nostalgic.

A Sentimental Goodbye and Epic Sale

As the final day of trading commenced, G H Corlett Jewellers took to Facebook to express their gratitude to customers. The post read, "Ladies and gents, it's time to bid farewell to G H Corlett after a whopping 188 years of sparkles! Thank you from the bottom of our gemstone-filled hearts for all the love and support throughout the years." The shop also extended an invitation to shoppers to take advantage of their epic sale, encouraging them to stop by for a last hurrah.

Heartfelt Messages from Customers

The closure of G H Corlett Jewellers has not gone unnoticed by the local community. The shop's Facebook page was flooded with comments and messages of support from customers expressing their sadness at the end of an era. One customer wished the owners luck in their future endeavors, while another commented, "Enjoy your retirement and a very Merry Christmas." Many expressed their gratitude for the shop's service over the years and the memories created within its walls.

A Legacy of Quality and Craftsmanship

G H Corlett Jewellers has been a fixture on the high street for seven generations, offering a wide range of jewellery, watches, clocks, and fine goods. The shop has also been known for its trophy and engraving services, providing a personal touch to special occasions. The business was originally founded by Gary Corlett's great, great, great, great, great grandfather and has been passed down through the family ever since. Gary, who is the current owner, plans to continue his engraving and trophy-making work on a smaller scale from a different location after taking a break in Spring 2024.

While customers are encouraged to take advantage of the ongoing sale, they are also urged to collect any repairs or items as soon as possible before the shop closes its doors for the final time on December 23. The team at G H Corlett Jewellers assures customers that all queries and orders will be handled with the utmost care until then.
