After a fire left its longstanding Union Street shop gutted, Union Street Goldsmith has reopened. (See Northsider, Marina Times, August 2015.) In early November, the 40-year-old store reopened at 2118 Union Street, two blocks away from its previous location.
The fire did not cause any injuries, and the store reports that “not a single piece of jewelry was damaged” because it was all safely stored in its vaults. Co-owner Glenda Queen, however, did not survive to see the store’s renewal; she died of a massive heart attack before that could happen. Her partner, Terry Brumbaugh, will head up the reopened operation.
