The original store was started by Michaels father, Andrew F. Gallagher.  Andrew served in World War II before opening the store in 1948.  He began his watchmaker and jewelry training but was interrupted by his call to serve in the Korean War. He again returned to Delaware and went on to be one of the most respected and trustworthy jewelers in Delaware. He had several stores in various locations throughout New Castle County until he retired in 1989.  After his official retirement, Andrew became bored with retirement and decided he missed the jewelry industry and returned to work to assist his son, Michael and Michaels wife, Kathleen, at the new location in Fox Run Shopping Center, Bear. Andrew worked with his son until his death in 1995. Michael continued to follow in his fathers footsteps; offering quality merchandise and personalized service in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Michael Gallagher Jewelers does not endorse high-pressure sales techniques or sales gimmicks.

The Gallagher name in Delaware has always been synonymous with trust in the jewelry industry in Delaware. Michael is a trained GIA jeweler and along with his wife completed Advanced Laser Training.  Michael and Kathleen are also very involved with animal welfare in Delaware.
