While traveling to a jewellery show in Edmonton with a co-worker, Marilyn was involved in a serious car accident. Although she continued to work during her recovery, she found it difficult, which led to them selling the store and retiring to B.C.
In March 2005, Cam, his wife Janice, John and his wife Laurie became business partners. Then in December 2011 we had the unfortuneate passing of Laurie Brower John's wife. By 2015 John was earger to try his hand at another venture. In January 2016 John sold his shares in the company to Cam and Jan Kripki who are now the sole proprietors. John still continues to have a good working relationship with the partners and we wish him the best in his new ventures.
