Westende Jewellers, a Christchurch jewellery store, had become a mark of identification of the September earthquakes. The jewellery store is all set to reopen for the third time in over one year time on November 28 at the Colombo Street in Sydenham. The jewellery store was located on the corner of Manchester and Worcester streets for 30 years before being a victim to the disastrous earthquake which hit September last year. After that, the jewellery store re-domiciled twice. First they moved to Bell's Antiques on Gloucester Street where again they were hit by the February earthquake. Then they moved to Andrew Kelso's garage as a temporary location. The owner of the jewellery store, Mr. Roger Kelso, looked hopeful for the future business considering the new location as not the most glamorous one.
