Pennyweights Re-Opens Saturday With 'Spruced Up' Space

The Elm Street jewelry shop moves back from its temporary location at the end of the week.

If you haven't been able to find Pennyweights in its usual location at 124 Elm Street in the last week or so, not to worry—they'll be back there on Saturday, celebrating a new look and layout for the 32-year-old New Canaan jewelry shop.

Owner Kelly Sigg, a Ridgefield resident who for 13 years has owned Pennyweights with her husband Geoff—himself a 1986 New Canaan High School grad—told Patch they've been renovating since last Monday and are planning a grand reopening Saturday from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres.

The work includes creating more space on the sales floor by expanding six feet back, exposing a brick wall and bringing in new casings and wood floors.

"Just a little spruce up," Sigg said.

In the meantime, if you're looking to shop there, Pennyweights is in a temporary pop-up shop across the street (in the alleyway between Sarah Campbell and Chef Louis) until Friday evening.

And by the way, as an added enticement for customers to visit the renovated space, Sigg is offering a $50 gift certificate to those who "like" her Feb. 15 Facebook post on the store's page.

Finally. I look forward to buying all my secret Girl friends gifts there. I wondered why those construction guys were stalling around doing not much work and holding things up. It will be great to have the place back

The Siggs do seem to select their employees well. Some other shopkeepers<i won't name drop> on Elm would do well to go into Pennyweights and observe their employees interactions with customers.

Always a favorite, great selection, great customer service - the "go-to" place for gifts.
