An expanding Pennsylvania jewelry store chain plans to open its first New Jersey store soon on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
Payton Jewelry, which has four locations in Pennsylvania, has signed on to take the spot on 9th and the boardwalk left open when Henry's Jewelers decided to close its 9th Street location last fall.
Sean and Kristi Payton made the announcement on Facebook.
We have some really exciting news!
is opening our first resort location in Ocean City this year! We are beyond excited!! This truly is a dream come true for us !
The Paytons began their jewelry business online selling handmade jewelry and watches, before opening four jewelry boutiques in the past two years in Pennsylvania.
There are Payton Jewelry
locations in Doylestown, King of Prussia Mall, Lehigh Valley Mall, and Montgomery Mall. Payton Jewelry sells jewelry, handbags, candles and accessories.
The Facebook post says that Payton Jewelry will be a year-round business and is now hiring for summer and year-round positions.
The departing business in this location, Henry's
, which goes by the tagline "Ocean City's Landmark Jeweler", has been open at their 12th Street store for 48 years, selling a variety of jewelry and beach and athletic wear, sweatshirts and t-shirts.
The 9th Street location of Henry's had been a comparatively new venture in this prime spot on the Boardwalk. There is another Henry's Landmark Jeweler on Washington Street in Cape May.
No opening date has been given for the new Payton Jewelers on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
