Why the store is dark right now...(no, we are not going out of business)

Friends and customers, 
Gem Jewelry Boutique has closed up the shop at 1710 N. Damen Ave., in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. While Gem maintained a solid performance at the location and intended to stay on, the owner of the building shifted his intentions very late in the lease renewal process in favor of a “major retailer”. Unfortunately, due to conditions and restrictions, we were unable to share this information with you until now. At some point our blog will chronicle the episode, if only to educate and entertain current and future independent retailers. At this moment we are negotiating a new address and will be up and open in quick order. We still have our wonderful jewelry available for purchase on our secure commerce website, . And you can continue to reach us at 773-384-7700, and at  Thank you so much and see you soon!
Laura and Nick Kitsos,
Gem Jewelry Boutique
