Introducing Kevin O'hern


Merritt Jewelers in Pequot Lakes is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Much of the business' success, Barb Merritt said, is due to one particular individual: Kevin O'Hern has been the store's goldsmith for 15 of those 30 years.

Originally from southern California, O'Hern moved to Minnesota in the fall of 1998 after one influencing visit to his father-in-law's home, then in the fall of 1999 he began working at Merritt Jewelers.
