Jacobs Jewelers leaving the historic building in downtown Jacksonville

What may be Jacksonville’s oldest jewelry store, will move from the historic downtown building that called it home more than nine decades ago after selling the classic building it docks in.

Roy and Delores Thomas, owners of Jacobs Jewelery, who have worked there since 1968, will say they are moving to a “more customer friendly” location after Jan.

As rental brochures for the Greenleaf and Crosby building show their corner location for rental along with other parts of the Art Deco structure, Delorise Thomas said it was time for a new chapter.

“We love being downtown and being a part of Jacksonville history,” she said. “We’re definitely not leaving. We’re just moving in. We’re excited about the new location and very excited about the future of Jacksonville.”
