Kapri Jewelry at 198 Court Street in Cobble Hill just recently closed its doors and the storefront is now for rent..  A sign on the door indicates that the closure was a result of "'excessive rent."
Granted,  Kapri certainly did not carry fine pieces of jewelry, but if you needed a gold chain repaired or a new battery for your watch, this was the place to go.
Luckily, the owner promises to continue offering repair services to the community as soon as he finds a new location.  In the meantime, he can be contacted at the number on the flyer above.

Meanwhile, North Star Real Estate Group  has listed the storefront for $5,000 a month.

This is very sad news. I always went in there to get my watches fixed or cleaned. I love the people who run the store - always friendly, and the prices were so fair. I hope that they'll find another location - rents are a challenge to shops and services like these - and it;s the community's loss.

Very sad to hear this. They were wonderful whenever I had a clasp that needed to be repaired or a new battery for a watch.
