Downtown landscape changing

Milton’s closing after 40-plus years

Change is coming to downtown Uvalde in the form of business closings. But when one door closes, another opens, and the area has gained a hair salon and pizzeria.

Retirement, property tax relief, career change and downsizing are a few of the reasons several downtown business owners have opted to place their businesses and/or buildings up for sale.

After more than 40 years in downtown Uvalde, Milton’s Jewelry and Gifts owners Lucille and Frank Milton will retire at the end of the year.

“This is our second career in life,” Lucille said, noting that her husband served in the military for 22 years prior to purchasing the building. “This will be Milton’s Jewelry and Gifts 42nd Christmas. That is a long time for anybody.”

The building is up for sale, although the couple says several individuals have expressed an interest in purchasing it.
