A second location in New York is slated to open this summer.

Blue Nile is continuing its brick-and-mortar push, saying it plans to open four new webrooms – what the online retailer calls its physical storefronts – in 2016, according to Rapaport. That includes a second location in New York that is scheduled to open this summer, the article says.

A webroom, which looks a lot like an Apple store, is equipped with tablets that allow customers to place orders directly from the store. The benefit of this concept is that it gives Blue Nile a physical footprint without having to manage inventory and other overhead costs that a typical retailer must. The company cited its continued emphasis on webrooms shortly after it announced disappointing fourth quarter sales numbers.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
