Toivo’s Jewelers –
Toivo and his wife Edna started Toivo’s Jewelers in 1958. Toivo’s Jewelers was located at 16 First Street SW, just north of American State Bank. Toivo had to close the store closed in 1979 due to poor health. In his closing ad, Toivo stated that his merchandise was not marked up as prices increased, thereby giving his customers the opportunity to purchase items at discount prices. On top of that, Toivo’s was offering additional discounts of 25% to 50% off.
