Scheherazade Jewelers in Edina, MN, is shutting down, and everything must go — including its iconic chandelier.

The high-end store closed suddenly in March, then reopened in May for a 30- to 60-day going-out-of-business sale, the Star Tribune reports.

According to the newspaper, the business in Edina’s Galleria filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in March.

Owner Scott Rudd is no longer working in the store. It’s being staffed by “a couple of longtime employees and workers from Eaton Hudson liquidation company,” the Star Tribune reports.

In a recent Facebook post the store said it’s accepting silent bids for its chandelier, along with “a variety of other decor, artwork and furniture.”


Most merchandise in the store has been discounted 20% to 60%, plus another 10 % off the initial discount.  Proceeds will go to unpaid wages as well as other debt, according to the Star Tribune.

The store’s financial troubles have been linked to a move from a high-visibility location in the Galleria to a less prominent one.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
