(Richmond, IN)--Another business is saying goodbye to downtown Richmond. Vivian Himelick, who is the owner of Sanders Jewelers, indicated Tuesday that the store would be closing soon after it had operated at multiple locations in the downtown area for the last 77 years. The primary reason given for the closure was a change in retail climate. The building is being purchased by an architect who plans to renovate the upper two floors of the building for use by an architectural firm. The Sanders building, along with the Readmore and former Hoppe building, have now all been purchased by individuals or companies with architectural ties.
