You’re Invited to Our 150th Anniversary Celebration September 5, 2017 – Posted in: The Latest

In 1867, the jewelry store that would become Herman Hiss opened in the heart of downtown Bay City. Today, the 5th generation of the Hiss family is proud to continue our founding philosophy of offering high-quality goods at fair prices.

Over 150 years, we’ve been grateful to play a part in countless engagements, weddings, baptisms, birthdays, and other milestone celebrations. Now, as we approach our own milestone anniversary, we invite you to join in our celebration.

A highlight of the week is a visit from Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of @verabradley. She will be in the store on Wednesday, October 11, to sign books. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to meet this lovely lady and dynamic business woman!

Her exciting visit is just one of the special events we have planned for each day of our Oct. 9-14 celebration. Throughout the week, don’t miss your chance to register to win one of the beautiful prizes we’re offering to our customers. All prizes will be displayed at the store.
