White Jewelers is expected to remain closed for about three weeks in the wake of an armed robbery that left two people with gunshot wounds.
Repairs will have to be done to the York Township store after it was damaged during a robbery last week, owner John White said in an email.
He was shot three times during the robbery - in the abdomen, the left arm and the shoulder/chest area.
White, 57, was listed in satisfactory condition Tuesday, after having been listed in serious condition Friday afternoon, a York Hospital spokesman said.
Steve Miller, store vice president, will oversee the store repairs, which include repairs to wood and glass display cases, White said.
"In addition we are hoping to upgrade the store security," he said.
The robbery: Two men entered the 204 St. Charles Way store at 10:28 a.m. Thursday and announced they were robbing the store, York Area Regional Police had said.
At least one of the men was armed, and shot a glass display case that held jewelry. Two of White's employees - a man and a woman - were also in the store at the time but weren't hurt.
At some point during the holdup, a third robber came inside the store and participated. After taking jewelry, including watches, all three men fled.
One of the robbers was shot at some point during the robbery. Police believe he was shot by one of his fellow robbers after walking out of a back room of the store and startling the gunman.
The FBI tracked down 39-year-old Jamell L. Smallwood of 439 N. Fourth St. in Allentown at Brooklyn Hospital in New York City. Police have said he is believed to be the injured robber.
Smallwood is being charged with attempted homicide, criminal conspiracy/aggravated assault, robbery in which there was serious bodily injury, robbery with the threat of serious injury, theft by unlawful taking, and receiving stolen property, according to charging documents.
Thankful: White said none of the jewelry stolen during the robbery belongs to customers who dropped items off at the store for repairs.
Miller will handle all repairs to customers' jewelry as White recovers.
"We are sorry for any difficulty this unseen temporary closing is causing our customers," White said.
He added that he's thankful for all the well-wishes he's received so far.
"I am grateful and will forever appreciate all the (prayers) and well-wish's that has been sent to me," White wrote. "They have worked and (have) gotten me this far."
