Walt’s Jewelry has been a fixture in Fillmore for 30 years. Generations of engagements, marriages, birthdays and anniversaries have been celebrated with jewelry gifts from Fillmore’s only jewelry store.

Walt opened for business in November 1989 in the old Vons Shopping Center before moving to his current location on Central Avenue, across from the post office.

“I saw families grow over the years, and enjoyed watching them leave happy with their jewelry and repairs,” said Walt.

“I want to thank all the customers and friends who supported my business for all these wonderful years of gratifying labor. I received a lot of satisfaction offering them my services, accomplishing a job well done.”

The Fillmore Gazette first reported on Walt’s Jewelry in its December 21, 1990 edition. Walt talked about how he started out in Fillmore after Howard’s Jewelers closed on Central Avenue, and how the Persian Gulf War, when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, “put a damper” on business.

Walt’s phone number is (805) 990-5010 for any questions, advice or personal communications. Walt is offering a 30% discount on gold jewelry, and a 50% discount on silver. He will close business for good on February 29th, at 2 p.m.

Walt’s Jewelry will be missed!
