UNIVERSITY PARK -- When that pricey watch stops ticking, one store inside the Mall at University Town Center will aim to turn back time.
Fast-Fix Jewelry and Watch Repairs has committed to the mall as the shopping center is less than 90 days from opening.
The company started in 1985 and offers repairs while you shop as well as engraving, smartphone repair and custom jewelry design. The Delray Beach-based chain has more than 200 stores in the U.S. and Ireland, including stores inside Westshore and International plazas in Tampa and Westfield Brandon and Countryside malls. This would be the first Fast-Fix in the Bradenton-Sarasota market. The International Plaza location, managed by Mall at UTC operator Taubman, opened in 2013.
