Local jeweler hosts annual men’s night out

MARQUETTE — A local jewelry store was the place to be Friday night if you were looking for a gift for that special woman in your life.

Richardson Jewelers in Marquette held its annual men’s night out Friday evening. Customers could come in and relax with some refreshments while looking at the jewelry selection in the store. Owner Jeff Richardson said this shopping-made-easy event helps bring some Christmas spirit to the community.

“It’s always to get guys together, have them come out and enjoy and relax,” said Richardson. “We have refreshments, we have food and it gives them the opportunity to look around and just give them a time to look around. It’s traditional.”

There was also the opportunity to enter into a giveaway drawing for a large American flag, a grill or a basket full of U.P. goodies. Richardson said the turn-out is always good and this year was no exception. The annual men’s night out has been a Richardson Jeweler tradition all 14 years since they’ve been at the Marquette location.
