A well-known diamond store in Atascadero is closing its doors after being in business for 40 years.
K-Jon's Diamonds and Gems will close-up shop by the end of the year.
The owners of the business say they are planning to retire after 50 years in the gemstone industry.
Despite their love for their work and building a bond with the community through the diamond business, they are happy to have had the career that has spanned decades.
"We've had the opportunity to be in a business that we love going to work every day. It’s just because we love the people and the community and it's just so nice we were lucky to have a job that we have a passion for and that we love going to work at the end of the day,” said co-owner Mary Sherwin.
In order to liquidate all of their inventory, they are holding a going out of business sale until everything runs out.
They are offering up to 70 percent off everything in store.
