Carter Jewelers, 1648 State Road: March 2021
Carter Jewelers closed down back in March after its owner, Robert J. Carter, passed away. This small jewelry store had been in business since 1990 and was originally located at the old Chesterfield Commons shopping center. I had been meaning to stop by to have my (not smart) watch battery replaced and start wearing a watch again (because why not) and also to have my wedding band expanded half a size. In the past, Carter Jewelers had done a well enough job with replacing my watch battery, and I had found their prices to be fair.
It seems that Mr. Carter may have suddenly become ill and passed away unexpectedly. Having had my own personal experience with that happening to a member of my family very recently, I absolutely sympathize with the family and wish them peace.
