"Hurdle's Jewelry was founded by my grandfather in 1947. In 1953 my father, Bud took over. I began working full time in 1978. My daughter, Nicole has chosen to come into the business, making this a 4 generation store."
"Hurdle's Jewelry became the first jeweler in Boulder to join the American Gem Society and to date, only one other jeweler has ever qualified to join."
How has the store been so successful for such a long period of time?
"Customer service. Creating a unique and friendly environment to shop in while providing the very best quality and value in our merchandise."
The secret to a happy life?
"Just do the right thing. Be honest. Show integrity. Treat others as you would like to be treated."
"For breakfast today I had an egg white omelet with chorizo, jalapeno's and green chili at Snooze."
"If I wasn't working today, I'd be playing golf or on a beach somewhere."
