After negotiations with landlord turn sour, jeweler to consider another location in the area.

Black, Starr & Frost has closed its location in Newport Beach, CA, company chairman Alfredo Molina announced in a statement. The decision to close the store came after the jeweler was unable to negotiate a lease renewal with its landlord, he said, adding that other retail options in the area will be explored. Black, Starr & Frost’s other location in Phoenix, AZ will remain open.

“Black, Starr & Frost has been America’s longest continually operating jeweler in America, and will maintain that title. We have made the difficult decision to close our Newport Beach salon following extensive negotiations with the landlord in which we were unable to come to a feasible agreement,” says Molina. “We are exploring retail options in Orange County, as well as future expansion into new markets. Black, Starr & Frost has proudly served Orange County for 28 years, and is committed to continuing to serve the community, including chairing the upcoming American Heart Association Heart Ball gala on June 10 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel.”

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.”
