As the years followed, two of the brothers went out on their own. The brother that remained brought in his son, and taught him watch and clock repairs.
In 1966, the YMCA building and school closed, and Compton Brothers moved across the street to the newly built Mills Building. They were the second tenants to be in the building. The name changed to Compton Jewelers, Inc.
As the years grew, a third generation started working at the family store. One as a master Rolex watchmaker, my brother Craig, and myself, Mr. Compton's daughter.
I'm reaching out today because as many of you know, this pandemic has not been kind to small businesses. Between being shut down for months and other various complications, small businesses are hurting all over the country.
In order to continue the legacy of my grandfather and father, I'm reaching out to all my wonderful friends and customers to help our small business. I want to stay in the neighborhood. I'm hoping you can open your hearts, as I have opened mine through the years of service to you, to contribute to the future of our store and help us not close the doors.
Thank you with all my heart,
Donate if you can during this trying time.
