Independent jewellers to close after 70 years in business

Family-owned Revills Jewellers of Spalding, in Lincolnshire, will shut its doors at the end of July after 70 years in business. 

The store was first opened by Roy Revill on Francis Street before moving to its current location on Market Place, but current managing director Nick Revill told local paper Spalding Today that the store would go out with a “bang”.

It will offer its stock of new and secondhand jewellery, diamond rings, watches, clocks, china and glass at clearance prices.

Nick Revill told the paper that it was the right time to close because he’s 57 and some of his staff are also approaching retirement age.

He told the paper: “I do a lot of fishing. I would like to tour Europe, I have got lots of things in the pipeline that I would like to do. I have got a list of jobs as long as your arm to do at home.”
