I had to laugh at the "snooty" comment. Folks at Perry's at SouthPark are anything BUT snooty! A couple of years ago, Mr. Perry walked around the mall wearing overhauls! Yes, they have some nice looking gals working there, but they're classy, not snooty. Nice gals. They have a couple of older guys who have been in the business for many years. They know their stuff. You want to buy a nice piece? Ask for Lou. He's about as snooty as a bagel and as knowledgeable as World Book Encyclopedia. You want a great deal? Attend one of their charity auctions and bid on some really nice stuff. Get a great price and a nice piece of jewelry AND help out someone in need. I've been knowing and buying from Mr. Perry and his wife since they were just starting out, and I've bought something nice for my wife at Perry's every year for about thirty years. Great memories. Great price. Fantastic, beautiful jewelry. Better yet, Perry's is home grown!
