Laudick’s Jewelry celebrated its opening under new owner Katie (Laudick) Harting and her husband, Cole, on Tuesday morning. Harting is a third-generation owner of the family business that has a location at 1244 S. Shannon St. in Van Wert and also one in Coldwater. The store will continue to offer the same services as it has in the past and hopes to add new products as well later this year. Harting has done a few renovations to the building in Van Wert including new painting since she has taken over ownership as well as changing the hours to 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
