35 YEAR APPLE VALLEY BUSINESS TO CLOSE

JAY F. JEWELER, which has been a mainstay in Apple Valley for 35 years, is soon to close up as their lease was coming to an end and retirement is approaching. They contacted their frequent customers this last week for first offers on inventory closeouts.
We want to thank Jay F. Jeweler Owner Jay Feichtinger (pictured) for being such a community leader. Jay had served over a decade ago on Apple Valley Chamber’s Board of Directors. He has been exceptionally generous to the Chamber and hosted many Business After Hours events with his huge drive-up meat smoker that he uses while traveling the country to watch his favorite Minnesota Gophers Football. One year he even donated a $5,000 Lazar Diamond that was raffled off at our Chamber Gala (won by Kathy Maguire of Kwik Kopy). So much generosity and leadership over the years.
Jay was especially instrumental in assisting the Chamber and all businesses along Cedar in protecting business access which would have been severely hindered if the original “BRT Design” had been implemented. He has donated to many schools and non-profits besides the Chamber over the years in significant ways. A true community leader who will be missed but promises to still be around to enjoy more time with family, friends and hundreds of clients who became friends. These are friendships that will last as long as his diamonds. Thank you, Jay!
THE FOLLOWING IS A
STATEMENT FROM JAY
A Message for Customers and Friends of Jay Feichtinger – The last 35 years operating my store and growing with the Apple Valley and surrounding communities has been a joy, and truly a labor of love. Starting as Valley Jewelers, and growing into Jay F. Jeweler, I’ve been honored to receive support from you, our fabulous customers.
With immense gratitude for the decades of memories, friendships, and fabulous jewelry, I’ve made the decision to close Jay F Jeweler and begin the next chapter – which will include more time for family and grandchildren.
Through the years, I’ve been blessed with employees who are simply the best. Each offered honest and hard work to create memorable items and serve our customers.
All of our employees and customers will be missed. Look for more wind down details shortly.
My best,
Jay
