25 Years In Downtown Loveland
Loveland Reporter Herald
LOVELAND – The owner of a downtown Loveland business The Goldsmith Jewelers….. celebrated its 25th anniversary last month says “customer service is what it’s all about”.
We are a small mom and pop shop “treating people with respect,” is how we make our living, said Barb Hargrave, who with her husband, Jim Hargrave, opened The Goldsmith jewelry and watch repair shop and King Storage at 101 W. Fourth St. on June 27, 1992.
The Hargraves also rent a space in the King building to His Place, a coffee, soup and sandwich shop.
Hargrave said she never knows who’s going to walk through her door, and she tries to treat everyone the way she’d like to be treated……”I couldn’t be here 25 years without that,” she said.
Jim Hargrave, a jeweler for over 40 years, does custom jewelry design, ring sizing, diamond setting, watch battery installation, watch band sizing and more at the shop.
Barb Hargrave said she spends more time at the businesses than her husband does. King Storage operates in the space vacated in 1986 by King Lumber, which opened at the location as Loveland Lumber in 1909.
King Storage offers 130 units, most of them with indoor access and an alarm system, and eight of them accessible 24 hours a day. The units in the two-story building range from 41/2 by 81/2 feet to 12 by 25 feet.
