A little over 90 years ago, in a small store across from Washington Park in Manitowoc, JA Boelter started the company originally known as JA Boelter’s Jewelers. In 1965, the business was taken over by sons Bill and Bob and the name was changed to Boelter’s Jewelers. The Boelter family started the business with the desire to help Manitowoc’s residents with their jewelry needs. With the store’s welcoming atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, large merchandise selection, and excellent repair services, Boelter’s soon became “Manitowoc’s Busiest Jewelry Store.” In 1988, Boelter’s Jewelers, Inc. was purchased by Richard Francois. After outgrowing the original location, the store expanded to a more spacious location at 2101 Washington Street, where they are still thriving today.
Boelter’s primary goal is providing the area’s best selection of jewelry and the kind of service that keeps customers coming back. Many people think buying jewelry is intimidating and expensive, but Boelter’s believes making a jewelry purchase should be a fun, heartwarming experience. That’s why Boelter’s provides a variety of exceptional quality items to meet any need. The store is well known for its Fine Jewelry, Seiko Watches and Clocks, ID Bracelets, Charms, Add-A-Pearls, Honora, Baby Gifts, and Sterling Silver Jewelry.

With over 30 years of jewelry experience, Kathy did not hesitate when the opportunity to purchase the store came up on May 4, 2015. Kathy and Tom Muench of Manitowoc purchased Boelter’s Jeweler’s LLC; Kathy’s longtime dream came true; making Boelter’s locally owned once again.
