Michael Greenetz was already managing a jewelry store at the time of the 1920 Census. In 1921 the brothers were partnered with Abraham Pelicoff in a jewelry store which by 1928 was at 833 Broadway. By 1930 Pelicoff had relocated to Atlantic City, where he operated a hotel. Michael and Joseph Greenetz remained on Broadway, moving their jewelry store to 839 Broadway by the mid-1930s. The store was still open at that location through the fall of 1956. Michael Greenetz passed away on August 13, 1958, and Joseph Greenetz died January 17, 1959. Their business did not survive them, and was not listed in the October 1959 New Jersey Bell Telephone Directory.
The Greenetz family remains in the jewelry business today, at 812 Haddon Avenue in Collingswood NJ, trading under the name of Ellis Antiques and Jewelry.
A son of Michael Greenetz, Dr. Harry R. Greenetz, practiced medicine in the Chews Landing section of Gloucester Township NJ for many years, until his passing in 1997.

showcases. A safe in the store was left untouched.
