For nearly 50 years, Michael Reed has owned and operated Goldart Jewelers. 

He told Erie News Now, "we have a lot of customers that like us, they tell their friends, their girlfriends and their boyfriends. It's really heartwarming when they come in for an engagement ring."

His passion for the business is on display every day. "I learned from different Jewelers all across the United States, from Phoenix to Pittsburgh."

He also enjoys visiting with customers on a daily basis.

"They bring me cookies during the holidays and we have a lot of fun."

The business is located on 3103 West 26th Street in Erie.

Goldart Jewelers is open Monday-Friday, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
