OUR HISTORY

In 1928, Malloves originally had 5 stores: Middletown, Danbury, Norwich, New London and Fitchburg, MA.  When the original Malloves' family sold their businesses in 1938, brothers-in-law Max Levin and Joseph Levine decided to buy the Middletown jewelry store and incorporate it with their gift store.  They moved the jewelry store from 262 Main Street to 471 Main Street. Malloves of Middletown was born.  On July 11, 1940, Max was killed in an automobile accident. Max's son Buzzy, then just 13, began to help out with the family business. During Buzzy’s senior year of high school, his Uncle Joe decided to take a break from the business.  It was then that Buzzy decided to stay on with the family business –even though he had a try-out with the Brooklyn Dodgers.  Buzzy says he never regretted that decision, even though he would have liked to see what “organized baseball was like”. 

Buzzy Levin officially bought the business from his Mom Beatrice and Uncle Joe in 1957.  That was the year Buzzy married Harriet Silver.  He prides himself on building a business based on hard-work and hand-shakes.  Malloves was a place where a young couple could establish credit by purchasing their wedding rings for $1 down and $1 a week.  He ran Malloves Jewelers through times of great success as well as great struggle including a fire on December 20, 1972 which completely destroyed the store.  Malloves desperately wanted to remain on Main Street so Buzzy moved to a temporary, smaller store for two years before permanently relocating to our current location at 404 Main Street in Middletown in 1974.

In 1983, Buzzy’s son Marc joined the Malloves team after attending the University of Tampa.  In 1992, Marc decided he could be very happy in the jewelry business and took over on April 1, 1992 and the rest is history!   Buzzy is now retired and lives in Florida but is a constant fixture at Malloves, returning to Connecticut regularly to help out during the summer and holiday seasons. Marc is entering his 23rd year as President of Malloves Jewelers.
