Founded in 1870 by George T. Springer in Saccarappa (now Westbrook, Maine), Springer's originally sold optical goods, stationery, artist materials, and fine jewelry. In 1925, Edmund Beaulieu acquired the business from the Springer family.

The store relocated to its current site on Congress Street in downtown Portland in 1947, when Ed Beaulieu Jr. joined the business and focused exclusively on jewelry.

The post stated that Richard Beaulieu, known as Rick, entered the family business in 1973 and assumed leadership from his father in 1988. Under Rick's guidance, the store continued its tradition of excellence.

The fourth generation of the Beaulieu family — Lilly Beaulieu Mullen, Zoe Beaulieu, and Eddie Beaulieu — has also become an integral part of the business.

As Rick Beaulieu retired, Springer's Jewelers reflected on a rich history and looked forward to the next generation's contributions.
