    • A Fort family legacy soon to celebrate 70 years in business

      Downtown icon Roland's Jewelery Ltd. is celebrating 70 years next year.

      Roland Gamache began his business in Morinville in 1948, initially doing watch and clock repairs with some appliance repairs in the early years.

      Over the past 69 years and a few location changes, the business has grown into its current 3500-square-foot spot on 100th Ave, just up the street from its very first Fort address.

      "Where the bowling alley is now is where the initial building sat. They lived in the back of their shop," said Roland's son Roger.

      Roger Gamache and his wife Pat started a trophy and engraving business in 1978, which was amalgamated with the jewellery store in 1982.

      Roland Gamache passed away in 2013 but his legacy lives on with his family carrying on with his life's legacy. Three generations of the Gamache family work in the store. Roland's wife Lena, at 84 years-old, still comes in a few mornings a week. Roger, his wife Pat and their three daughters Michelle, Danielle and Jill all currently work at the business.

      Aside from a vast display of diamonds, jewellery and gift ware, services offered include custom orders, watch and clock repairs along with trophies and engraving.
