The owners of Wakefield’s long-established Townsend Fine Jewellers have announced their plan to close the store.
It’s the end of an era for the well-known Marygate jewellers, which has provided many generations of local families with engagement rings, wedding rings and heirlooms.
The closure will be marked with a huge closing down sale, starting this Saturday, October 27, at 10am, which will see all stock, including diamond and coloured stones, engagement rings, earrings and necklaces, reduced by a massive 50 per cent.
In addition, the family safe will be opened offering for sale some exquisite bespoke pieces, incorporating fine rubies, sapphires and emeralds set in beautiful finished designs.
The closing down sale will start on Saturday at 10am.
