The building where Coats Jewelers is now is at the corner of Main at Trinity Streets. They don’t have a lot of information but their new location will be in the Wal-mart Shopping Center on the Highway 146 by-pass. It is located between Game Stop and the Japanese Restaurant. They will be somewhat larger in their new location that is opening in Mid-November. Bobby is originally from the city of Cleveland where his Father and brother own Coats Jewelers in that north Liberty County city.
