TYLER, Texas (KETK) A Tyler jewelry store is closing its doors after more than 150 years in business.
It is with great sadness that we announce that we will be closing our doors permanently on December 24th at 3pm. This was a decision that did not come easily and we are still coming to grips with it today.Murphey the Jeweler
We want to sincerely thank each and every one of you who have supported this historic business for over 150 years. It has been our pleasure.
Please come shop with us one last Holiday season because we have many fantastic prices on jewelry, watches, furniture, various antique Memorabilia, Tools, equipment and hundreds of loose gemstones as well. And we would love to see you all again too.
In front of their store is a plaque indicating the history they hold in Tyler.
The business started in 1868 at the corner of Ferguson Street and Broadway Avenue.
Archibald Murphey’s sons took over the business which was moved to the current location in 1919.
They are one of the oldest retail establishments in East Texas and will be missed.
If you are looking to get someone a Christmas gift, they will be open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
