Jewelers Row’s future could be changing

Jewelers Row, known to hold some of the finest items of a girl’s best friend, may not have such a bright future. With CTA construction plans on the Green Line’s Morgan Station located on Washington-Wabash set to start this fall and the city’s new plan to turn car lanes into bus and bike lanes, Jewelers Row business owners are worried. We talk with Don Strzepek, owner of Tucker Company, which has been in business since the 1930s, on how he’s noticed changes in a once booming location and what the future looks like for the historic area.
