Altoona – Kranich’s Jewelers, the area’s largest and oldest group of family owned jewelry stores has just opened their newest and fourth location. The 1600 square foot store in The Galleria recently opened, and a grand opening is scheduled for this week. “My sons and I are proud to offer the people of the greater western Pennsylvania region the same quality and selection we’ve been providing customers in the central part of the state since 1903”, said Michael M. Kranich, CEO. The new store specializes in diamonds, diamond engagement rings, and gemstone jewelry and offers a full line of Raymond Weil, Tagheuer, Wittnauer and Gucci watches. The new store also serves as authorized dealers of fine Waterford and Orrefors crystal. The three other Kranich’s Jewelers’ locations are in Altoona’s Logan Valley Mall (which houses the corporate offices), and in State College, with one store on College Avenue and another in Nittany Mall. Michael Kranich’s sons, Charles and Michael Jr., represent the fourth generation of Kranich’s to operate the family business.
