They may not quite be located on 6th Avenue anymore, however their quality service, selection, and dedication remains the same.
“We’re known for our customer service,” Legg noted. “People from all walks of life come in here and they all get treated just the same.”
Not only is it the same, but it will only get better from here, according to Michael Legg, Jeweler and Owner of the small-town jewelry store, which opened five years ago. Treasure Coast Plaza is now home to 6th Avenue Jewelers, and the new location in the high traffic plaza expects more exposure, and therefore, more customers. And, it’s only walking distance away from their original location, separated by a small alleyway, Legg said.
Legg said he has seen many new faces in the store since the move just over a month ago.
“My whole point for moving to the new location was for visibility and I think it was accomplished,” he said. “Thus far, business has been good and I am very thankful for that.”
One of the attractions of their original location was the open-repair style jewelry workshop in the store’s showroom, where customers could watch as their valuables were repaired and tended to. Customers appreciated that transparency and the ability to witness a jeweler in action.
“At my new store, I still have an open repair shop concept,” Legg explained. “But now with the larger location, that repair area has it’s own section and is no longer within the showroom. Our customers still have full view of our repairs services. We even have a separate watch service and repair room.”
One of Legg’s beliefs is that “a jewelry business is built off of trust and transparency with the clientele, and we do all that we can to earn that.”
Legg has a total of five employees including himself and fiancee, Alexandria. He has been in the jewelry business for over a decade now, and is known for his custom pieces designed for clients, such as custom-designed engagement rings and recreations of customer’s heirlooms into new pieces.
“The process is easier and more affordable than most may think,” he pointed out. “Pretty much anything that can be imagined can be made using all of today’s technologies.”
The new location of 6th Avenue Jewelers will have a an open-house style grand opening sometime in November, according to Legg. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served at the event.
I earned my bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Central Florida, and my bachelor's in nursing from Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA. I certainly embrace my experience as a nurse (and have experience as a firefighter and EMT as well), however my passion has always been in the field of journalism. I thoroughly enjoy writing and making words come to life.
When I'm not behind a computer screen typing or in front of a canvas painting, you can usually find me somewhere near the water with my two kids and my husky, Skye (who also blogs and has her own YouTube).
I think small businesses that are locally-owned and operated are far under appreciated so I support and recommend them whenever I can.
Oh, and I am fueled by sunshine, coffee, and pixie dust.
