They were part of a chain that folded.

Sixteen Ben Moss Jewellers stores are reopening in Canada under the ownership of Halifax-based Charm Diamond Centres, which has acquired rights to the brand.

In fact, seven of them have already opened their doors, the Kelowna Daily Courier reports.

Winnipeg-based Ben Moss Jewellers last year closed its 54 store locations after 106 years in business. A weak Canadian dollar and a soft economy in Western Canada were two factors that contributed to the retailer’s struggles.

So far, locations in Calgary, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Saskatoon have reopened, and one in Kelowna was set to open its doors any day now, according to the Daily Courier.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
