The idea of McArthur Jewelers was born when WWII was just ended and Tom McArthur was stationed in northern Italy. He went on leave to Switzerland where the clocks and watches intrigued him. He decided to pursue a career in selling and servicing watches and clocks.
Upon Tom’s return from the war, he enrolled in a watchmaker’s school in Sacramento, California using the “GI Bill”. At graduation he began working for Steadman Jewelers in Murray, Utah until 1950 when he moved with his little family to his home town of ST. GEORGE, and opened McArthur Jewelers on May 4th of the same year. The location was on Main street next to the Dixie movie theatre because, he thought,” the people will leave the movie theatre holding hands, they will see my diamond rings tempting them, and she will let him know the one she wants.”
The store grew and changed over the years. In 1968 a major addition and remodel added more than double the space. Tom Jr. came on full time moving from BYU (Provo, Utah) in 1972 when dad asked him to come help just for the summer, and as Tom Jr. says “the summer never ended.” In 1983 Tom Jr. and his lovely wife, Allison contracted to purchase the business and building from the “folks” taking the business to the 2nd generation.
Now we are in our 3rd generation with Keena, Megan, Celeste and Malea – four McArthur daughters working in the business and adding energy and vision to the company. Tom and Allison are around to lend a hand from time to time and really enjoy the family and the associates that are actively moving the business forward.
The concept of cyber sales, and internet activity is a bit of a challenge for the older McArthurs, however the youngsters find such a natural evolution. We’ve been around a long time because we are constantly striving to make ourselves the best, and this brings constant changes for the better.
We celebrate life here, and all of the events that make it rich and fulfilling! Our motto is Celebrate People Love & Life
