CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - It’s the end of an era for Lang Jewelry and Fine Gifts.
Owners Roger and Judith Anne Lang have announced they will retire this fall and close the store in Old Town Cape after 96 years in business.
The Lang's say the jewelry store has been in the family since 1916 at the same location at 126 North Main in downtown Cape Girardeau.
“While we will certainly enjoy our retirement, we will miss seeing our loyal customers and the familiarity of going to work in historic Old Town Cape each day," said Richard Lang, third generation owner. "It has been an honor and a privilege for the Lang family to serve the area for the past 96 years.”
Lang Jewelry and Fine Gifts will be closed to the public from September 8-16 to host private shopping events.
The Langs plan to close their doors forever this fall once all inventory and fixtures are sold.
