OUR FAMILY HISTORY
The '70s, '80s & 90s
"Time to Grow" – Expansion Starts
In order to keep up with the growth of the Treasure Valley,
we grew from 1 store to 2 …
then from 2 stores to 3 … then from 3 stores to 6.
“Time to Build the Ultimate Diamond Dream Store”
After growing from 1 store up to 6, Larry and Nelda Read built the Ultimate Brand New Diamond Dream Store in Meridian, Idaho.
This “Dream Store” put the services and selection of 6 small jewelry
stores all into 1 easy-to-find location.
“Time to Upgrade"
In wake of the pandemic, we took the opportunity to update our Diamond Dream Store while our doors were closed.
“Over Half a Century and Still Going Strong”
In the time since 2000, it’s been a “Dream Store” adventure.
We are always working our hardest to be fresh, yet classic and to make
your experience exceptional.
"Let’s Do This!" – The Beginning
On December 7, 1963, Lee & Maxine Read take a leap and opened the very first Lee Read Jewelers in Downtown Boise Idaho.
