HOW IT WAS
The roots of the business are traced to Fred Smith’s maternal grandfather who arrived in this country from Latvia in the early 1900’s. He had emigrated from a section of Europe which has been claimed at various times by both Poland and Russia. In 1918, once in Springfield, Fred Kalman opened Kalman’s Jewelry Store on Main Street next to Kennedy’s Coffee House.
