Our humble beginnings started in the early 1960’s, out of the back of a station wagon. Our founder Mr. Leland Smith sold various house hold gadgets to people who would come up to him. Eventually he asked the owners of Grandpa’s if he could have a small spot by the front door. The owner’s granted his request and we became Grandpa’s Jewelry. We operated under that name until January 2000. At that time Grandpa’s was sold to Value city and they had their own jewelry dept, so we had to build our own stand-a-lone store. We open 3 stores with the L.E. Smith Jewelers name. Over the years with our founder in his 80’s, he decided to close two store so that we can better serve our customers.
