Parkers Jeweller's Hillsborough

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why Parkers Jewellers  is still closed?

I haven't been on Hillsborough since before lockdown but my Husband says its still closed. 

I hope the staff and the owner are OK as I've gone in there years and got to know them well.

There is a sign on the shop window. They are moving to an online store only and will not be re-opening the shop. Anyone who has repairs with them should contact the shop for an appointment to pick it up. They will no longer do repairs.

That is a real shame.. can't be many places where your watch is placed in a tray and manually pulled upstairs for repair by the "elves" above on the 1st floor.

Sorry to see it go.

Real shame- they’ve been there as long as I remember and we’re always the go to trusted place for jewellery repairs. The bus queue outside was always a hindrance to perusing the shop windows and access to the wonderful old fashioned shop and service.

I remember it as a child and that's over 70 years ago and they also had a men's wear shop next door I think that closed in the 70s.

I've used P A Jewellers at Commonside for repairs like that.

Thanks Liz, good luck and best wishes for the future to you and all Parkers staff.  I bought a vintage watch from you a while ago which I'm delighted with - will Parkers still carry out routine future service work on watches they sold?
