To give you a background into Segal's here is a little history!
The business was started by Jack Segal, a time served watchmaker. In addition to repairing watches, he saw an opportunity to buy scrap gold and silver. After extracting some items of jewellery, he repaired them and offered them for sale, sparking the beginning of a successful business. His son Maurice, on leaving the Army joined the business in 1947. However, Maurice had a particular interest in Antique and secondhand jewellery and he developed this side of the business with great success. Maurice found that he couldn't buy enough secondhand and antique jewellery to stock his shop and over 40 years ago started buying new jewellery as well. His passion for buying and selling antique and secondhand jewellery was the beginning of the Segal's we are today. Maurice sadly passed away in October 2011, but his spirit is still very much alive in the business today.
Maurice’s wife Shirley is still involved with the business which has expanded extensively but her son Mathew and daughter Jo manage the day to day running of all three shops. Personal attention is therefore guaranteed at all times, as there is at least one member of the family on hand. Mat's wife Jane and Jo's husband Martin are now also heavily involved with the growing business.
In 1997, we opened a sparkling new shop in Freshney Place Shopping Centre, Grimsby. This store stocks a range of Segal’s stock – including gold, silver, and gifts.
In November 2019 the business moved to larger premises, just moving 50 yards from the old shop in Paragon Arcade which has been turned into a dedicated Silver Shop. The shiny new shop on the corner of Chariot Street and Carr Lane very much embraces the feel of the Segal's that everyone knows and loves, just with a little more sparkle.
