BIG RAPIDS — Serving the Big Rapids community for 70 years, Rogers Jewelers has become a staple business in the downtown area.

At the Big Rapids City Commission meeting Monday night, Mayor Tom Hogenson and other city officials recognized this milestone, offering their appreciation to John and Susan Miedema, owners of the jewelry store.

Hogenson said Rogers Jewelers has been an anchor business that continues to provide a valuable service to the community.

“This represents the huge investment in the well-being of our community, and we thank you,” Hogenson said.

Rogers Jewelers is the second longstanding business in the area to be recognized for its commitment, the first being Schuberg’s Bar and Grill in July. Hogenson said the city plans to continue to search for businesses in the community to recognize.

“This is a process we began a little while ago,” he said. “Looking first at businesses who have been in the community and doing good work for many years.”
