FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith announces it is closing its doors for good after 109 years of operation.

The Newton family announced its retirement in a press release on April 3. The family also announced a liquidation event as well.

“We’re opening the vaults and offering unique pieces even our loyal customers have never seen. I want everything sold quickly, so we are putting our best discounts out there,” Kelly Newton said. “This sale is going to blow folks away – it’s really going to be something to see!”

Sale hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The release says the store was founded by George H. Newton in 1914 and that the reach of the business expanded until it had customers in more than 40 states.
