After 95 years, Bergstrom Jewelers is going out of business

It's been a staple in the Twin Cities jewelry business.

One of the longest standing jewelry stores in Minnesota is going out of business. 

Bergstrom Jewelers, located in The Shops at West End in St. Louis Park, announced that it is shutting its doors after 95 years as a family-owned operation. 

The store spent its first 87 years in downtown Minneapolis before moving to St. Louis Park in 2010, a decision its owners said was difficult but necessary in order to make it easier for people in the suburbs to reach them. 

"Yes, after all these years BERGSTROM JEWELERS is GOING OUT OF BUSINESS and WE ARE CLOSING THE DOORS FOREVER!" a company flyer says. 

The store's going out of business sale features discounted prices up to 70 percent off, the lowest prices they've ever had. You can follow them on Facebook for flash sales as well

Hometown Source reports that Bergstrom will give a free piece of jewelry to the customer with the oldest receipt from the store. The oldest they've received so far is from 1959. 

"We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our business will always be our most cherished memories. We are proud to have had you as part of our Bergstrom family." 

Hometown Source notes that the store will close once all the inventory is sold.
