    Samuel Gordon Jewelers is closing its doors after 111 years of business in Oklahoma City.

    The business was founded in 1904 by Lithuanian immigrant Samuel Gordon, who opened the jeweler’s first location in downtown Oklahoma City.

    Gary Gordon, who will turn 68 years old next month, said he is closing the business so he can retire.
    It's sad that after so many years they can't find some way to keep it in operation.

    Dan Gordon, presumably the next in line, split for Columbus, Ohio a year or two ago.

    Didn't he have a tiny little place up on north May for a while?

    There are suppose to be getting some good discounts soon I have heard. There is a young lady up there named Ashley that has helped me out in the past. If your looking for jewelry might be worth stopping by.

    I'll have to stop by one last time. I love a good local jeweler.

    That was Alan Gordon. I have no idea if he was related to the other Gordons.

    That's right. It was Alan Gordon.

    Alan Gordon (founder of Alan Gordon and Son) was Samuel Gordon's son. Gary Gordon's uncle. Gary Gordon is Samuel Gordon's grandson. It's a shame to see such a venerable company come to an end. SGJ joins Crescent Market (RIP) in history's dustbin. Both were among very few territorial (pre-statehood) companies remaining in OKC. Bummer.

    Where he got the bread to go, ain't nobody knows.
