CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
IN FRODSHAM

It was a day of celebrations on Saturday 19th October as Les Harris Jewellers marked 50 years of business in Frodsham.

The fizz was flowing and the shop was full of customers, friends and family enjoying the occasion. We were all delighted to see the main man himself and many people were reminiscing with Les about visiting the shop since their childhood. Happy memories of adding to their charm bracelet or to choose a gift with a parent.

On the day there was a visit from the Mayor of Frodsham, Councillor Liam Jones as well as exclusive offers to take advantage of and one lucky winner went away with the Golden Ticket in a prize draw, winning £50 worth of jewellery!

Many of you will know that when Les retired he handed the reins over to daughter Niki and son in law, Andy. Ably assisted by Sophie and Claire.

Over the years Niki and Andy have added new lines to the shop, catering for a wide range of clientele. From traditional contemporary pieces including precious stones and timeless classics to more modern lines such as Emozioni, Annie Haak, Clogau and Hot Diamonds.

As part of the 50 year celebrations, the couple have been busy re-vamping the shop with a new colour scheme which sets off the displays beautifully.

The bespoke, separate Wedding Room that was introduced a few years ago is very popular with Brides and Grooms and although Les is no longer at the helm, jewellery and watch repairs are still available as well as a jewellery cleaning service.

Here’s to many more successful years....Cheers!
