Julie Kolmer, a co-owner of Michael’s Jewelry, said they are replacing the store’s front windows and replacing some wood in the front.
Julie Kolmer saws a floor foundation board for display windows. She said she and her husband are doing the work themselves and hope to finish the task by the Christmas shopping season. She said they began around Labor Day.
The couple has owned the shop, located in the former Susman’s store, for about 23 years.
Kolmer said that while they were pulling ceiling and wall board, they uncovered intricate painted work from an earlier store.
