Cornell jewellers in Maidstone to close after 225 years

Retirement sale supported by Whitehouse. Article by Suffolk News.

A town centre jewellers is closing after 225 years.

Cornell & Sons in Gabriel’s Hill, Maidstone, will finally shut its doors in the next few weeks after it gets rid of all its stock in a clearance sale.

The store, which opened in 1796, is shutting after owners Andrew Putley and Stewart Cook decided to retire.

It will be closed this week for a stock take before a massive 50% off clearance sale starts on Saturday, October 29.

Once everything is sold, the store will shut for good.

George Cornell started in the business as an apprentice and took over the store from the original owner, changing the name to G. Cornell and Sons.

Still in family ownership, in 1890 the shop was relocated to its current premises, where subsequent generations of Cornell jewellers traded and lived with their families above the recognisable premises.
