Bryan & Scott Jewelers’ owner Roberto Agnolini says preparation is under way this week for the store’s final “Client Appreciation” event.
The retailer, known for custom design and estate jewelry, antiques, furniture and art objects, will host a special party for long time clients and customers from 5 to 8 p.m. Aug. 26 at 112 N. Tejon St.
Both local and out-of-town guests have been invited to share in the 57-year-old store’s rich history.
The 10,200-square-foot Bryan & Scott building, built in 1900 and owned by Agnolini, is listed by Sierra Commercial Real Estate for $1.85 million.
“I know this isn’t a good time to sell, but what are you going to do,” he said.
Agnolini, a well-known interior designer expects to continue “answering the needs of my clients,” and will continue to have a listing in the phone book under Bryan & Scott.
“This is the oldest company of its kind in the west – more than 57 years we’ve been in business,” he said, adding that once the store closes on Jan. 1, remaining stock will be shipped to Dallas for auction.
