A History of Robins Goldsmithing
Located on Halls Lane in downtown Kitchener, Robins Goldsmithing becomes incorporated as a registered business and begins operations with the parameters of being a jewelry repair wholesaler for local retail stores.
By 1995, Robins Goldsmithing was recognized as a cost efficient, local solution for many jewelry retailers within the region of Waterloo. Robins Goldsmithing had now established over 15 retail stores as regular customers.
Robins Goldsmithing moves from downtown Kitchener to Kingsway Dr. and establishes a larger location. The store allows Robins to expand its repair shop and continues to grow its retail store wholesale repairs. This was also the inception of custom design jewelry at Robins Goldsmithing.
Having developed a very sizeable customer base, Robins Goldsmithing decided it was time to establish a retail showroom. This created an avenue to better serve its entire customer’s wants and needs.
Robins Goldsmithing moved to 188 King St. in Waterloo. This move was undertaken with the sole purpose of creating a better all-round experience for both current and potential customers by adding a modern touch to the existing processes that have built this company from the beginning.
