Tidwell's Holds Ribbon Cutting at Expanded Johnston Location
web posted November 30, 2012
JOHNSTON – Tidwell Jewelers
held a ribbon
cutting Thursday afternoon to open the expanded Johnston location that
has doubled the size of the popular jewelry and fine gifts store. Owner
Danny Tidwell said with the expansion the location is now nearly 5,000
square feet of jewelry, watches, fine china, gifts and more. It also
increased the workshop area of the store for in-store repairs or custom
creation of a piece designed just for you.
Tidwell Jewelers has been in business dating back to the 1930's, Danny
Tidwell said. His father started the company long before coming to
Johnston. The current Johnston location was opened in 1987, though a
previous Johnston location was opened in the mid 1970's.
The expansion of the Johnston location
allows the display of far more
jewelry and other gift items and an expanded Bridal Registry area.
"We're very excited," Linda Tidwell said prior to the ribbon cutting.
That excitement was echoed by the throngs of those attending the ribbon
cutting including Johnston Mayor Andy Livingston and Edgefield County
Chamber of Commerce Director Donna Livingston.
Although there are three Tidwell locations in the area with stores in
Johnston, Leesville, and Saluda, the Johnston location is the main
anchor of the business.
All sales associates are not paid on
commission, which prevents high
pressure sales that are found in other jewelry businesses. The low
overhead also allows Tidwell's to offer the finest in jewelry or gifts
at the best prices available.
With the expanded location, Tidwell's continues to offer better service
of in house repairs, custom designs, castings, stone settings, pearl
stringing, engraving and watch repairs. A one stop shop to meet all
Showcase product lines also include
well known names such as Lenox,
Kameleon, Lafonn, Caerleon, Novell, Noritake, Mikasa and Oneida.
In addition to name brands, Tidwell's has gifts that can fit into
anyone's budget, large or small. And with a gift being in a Tidwell's
box, the recipient knows you bought the very best.
The expansion also comes while the Tidwell Jewelers and Edgefield Daily
