Herman Hiss & Company has become a landmark in the downtown Bay City, MI, area. While a lot has changed around our beautiful, historic property at 905 Washington Ave., our status as a trusted, revered jewelry store has been a constant.

Our store is between 4th and 5th street on the same block as the State Theatre. If you’re visiting from Saginaw, MI, or Midland, MI, use I-75 or US-10 respectively and follow M-25 into downtown Bay City. You’ll find us to the left on Washington Avenue just after crossing the Saginaw River.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you our wonderful collection!
