Siegel’s to Close After Nearly a Decade

Soon-to-be-retired Ken and Kris Siegel opened their jewelry store in Paso Robles, California in 2012.

Ken and Kris Siegel are ready to retire after founding Siegel’s nearly a decade ago in Paso Robles, California.
Paso Robles, Calif.—Ken and Kris Siegel celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in February 2012, traveling to the beautiful wine town of Paso Robles, California.
The couple was taking time off from their jobs at the family business, a jewelry store founded by Ken’s grandfather in 1940.
The charm of the town drew them in and a new business was born.
By May of that year, Siegel’s held its grand opening in downtown Paso Robles.
“As soon as we saw the corner downtown location for rent, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for the next part of our journey as a family business,” said the couple in a press release.
After a decade of serving the downtown community, the Siegels are ready to retire.

The pair are leaving the business on a high note after having a record year.
Their retirement plans include taking a few months a year to visit their oldest son and his family in Australia.
Back in the States, they want to take active roles in local organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club and the Paso Robles Youth Arts Center.
The store’s “going out of business” sale began Nov. 9 and will continue until its jewelry and watches are sold out.
“We hope that someone can fill our shoes to fulfill the needs of this community and enjoy our location in the heart of downtown Paso Robles,” said third-generation jeweler Ken.
The full-service jewelry store carries brands like Belle Etoile, Michou, Luvente, Beverley K, and Parade Designs.
Ahead of the holidays, the store will showcase new inventory as well as one-of-a-kind estate pieces found at this year’s Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Trade Show.
For more information about the sale, visit the store’s website or Facebook page.
