When it comes to Bay Area jewelers, McDonald’s Jewelers is celebrating 60 years in Novato, Ca.
Established in 1952 by Romy McDonald, “McDonald’s Jewelers” is located at 908 Grant Ave. Downtown Novato. Romy opened the store with a McCaskey cash register and an unmovable floor safe both, are still a part of the store today. Given the name “your hometown jeweler,” it was purchased in the 90’s by Frank Bowlby, who decided to keep the “McDonald” name and the outstanding traditions. Pat & Sherry Bowlby purchased it from his brother Frank in 1997 and did a major remodel of the inside with new cases and a new look. Pat also brought in more of the gift items; clocks, picture frames, jewelry boxes and crystal vases. Gifts are still a part of McDonald’s charm.
