Carolyn Rafaelian, founder and CEO of Cranston, RI-based Alex and Ani, hopes to expand the company to 100 stores by this year.

Alex and Ani’s website currently lists 94 stores worldwide, along with dozens of shop-within-a-shop locations.

Rafaelian was recently interviewed on ABC’s Good Morning America about her company and its charity efforts.

The segment talks about Charity Design, an Alex & Ani program that creates unique charms for the company’s four-dozen nonprofit partners. Part of the revenue goes to the charity.

“What we represent as a brand is positive energy,” Rafaelian said.

The company has donated over $48 million to charity, according to the story.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
