WILKES-BARRE — Monday was opening day for a jewelry store that moved into an old building in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
“It was the Tiffany’s of Wilkes-Barre, they called it,” said Craig Wilson of Wilkes-Barre.
Shimmering jewels inside and a polished look outside.
All signs that the Frank Clark building on South Main Street in Wilkes-Barre had opened its doors for the first time in about 20 years.
“It looks great and it brings a tear to my eye when I walk in,” said Wilson.
Wilson’s father was a salesperson in the original Frank Clark jewelry store from the 1950′s to the 80′s.
The store opened in the late 1800s. It closed in the early 1990s and remained empty until now.
“Especially when we drove past it and saw it empty, it was sad to see it sitting here,” said Craig Wilson, of Wilkes-Barre.
