Ryan’s Jewelers in Sault Ste. Marie Closing

“The location has been a jewelry store for 114 years."

The doors to a Sault Ste. Marie jewelry store are closing, for now.

While it has changed names a couple of times, the storefront has been a staple in the Soo for over a century.        

Ryan’s Jewelers will shut its door one last time Saturday at 3 p.m.

It has been in business for 16 years under the Ryan’s name.

Now the owner of the business and the building hopes the building itself will house another jeweler.

 “I want to retain the integrity of this very busy retail block of downtown Sault Ste. Marie,” says Erika Frechette. “This is the heart of the retail part. I would love for it to continue for it to be a jewelry store.”

Frechette says she is not closing the doors because of the economy. 

She recently got married and is heading to the Caribbean to work with her husband at a resort.
