Multi-generational Billings business marks 80 years

BILLINGS – A Billings business with deep downtown roots will be celebrating its 80th anniversary Friday night, during the Holiday ArtWalk and the annual Christmas Stroll.

The celebration will run from 5 to 9 p.m. at Montague’s Jewelers, 2810 Second Ave. N., presided over by Chris Montague, who returned the third-generation store to downtown Billings after taking over from his father in 2004.

“I really wanted us to come back downtown,” Chris Montague said. “I just felt like our heritage was here.”
