A new jewelry store has taken over the former Highashi Jewelry space at the West Shore Farmer’s Market in Lemoyne.
Christy Hoover opened Christy Concept Jewelry in November in a newly renovated space (The store is temporarily closed until further notice. The store closed on March 16 following Gov. Tom Wolf’s request that all non-essential businesses close).
The selection at the new store includes fine to fashion Jewelry, and Hoover says many of the items are priced below retail. She says her store concept is similar to the Nordstrom Rack concept. Diamonds, gemstones, sterling silver and gold is included in the store’s more than 35 designer collections. When the store is open, Hoover says it receives new collections and/or pieces weekly.
The store has a coffee and tea bar, and a seating area for significant others while their loved ones shop, the store said in a press release.
The store offers jewelry repair and restoration; watch battery and band replacements, ring re-sizing, appraisals, jewelry cleaning, pearl and bead re-stringing.
Hoover is a Harrisburg-area native. She previously worked at Victoria’s Secret for 21 years in a number of leadership roles both in the field and in the home office. She also worked at Hess’s Department Store as a floor manager and buyer in the Allentown area.
When the store is open, its regular business hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Wednesday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The store is located at 900 Market St. on the top floor of the market. The store employs five people.
Susan Fotos retired after 19 year of operating Higashi Fine Jewelry and closed Higashi Fine Jewelry last year.
