THE LEON BAKER STORY
Douglas Hubert Baker started his apprenticeship in 1924 under his father Douglas Harry. Douglas Hubert and his wife moved to Northam where he managed a jewellery store and saw the birth of their first child, David Leon Baker.
Continuing the family tradition, David Leon Baker also completed his apprenticeship under his father which saw David do a tour around Australia and finally opening a store in Merredin. After marrying his wife and exciting 12 years of opening four stores throughout Country WA and having four daughters, the early 1970's saw David and his wife sell all four stores and have a four year break from the industry.
Fast forward to 2015, Leon Baker Jewellers are now down to the one location of Geraldton. David Leon Baker sold the business to his daughter Elise ( baker ) and her husband Shain Forth in 2008 who are now continuing the tradition of a family run and operated Jewellers.
