Albert Schmid Jewellers: Meet Albert & Gary
Posted: Jun 9, 2016

In the spirit of Fathers’s Day this month we want to celebrate all the dads that make our downtown a special place to work and play.

We applaud and recognize those dads & daughters and dads & sons that work together in business everyday.

Albert & Gary (Albert Schmid Jewellers


  1. How long have you been working together?

Twenty years.


  1. Why did you decide to work together/open a business together/come on-board?

Gary is seventh generation … so he thought he’d join the family business.


  1. What’s the best thing about working with your son?

Everything we’ve built stays in the family.


  1. Do you have any Father’s Day plans (ie lunch/dinner out, golfing, special trip planned)?

No, nothing planned. We might head up to our farm for the weekend.


  1. What was the best Father’s Day gift you ever received?

Haha, you’ll have to ask Gary, there’s been so many, I can’t pick just one.


  1. Is there anything special you want to say about your son?

We get along really well. He’s easy to get along with.
