Online retailer to enter the Washington, D.C. area.

Blue Nile will open its third brick-and-mortar Webroom store, which will be its first outside of New York, the online jewelry retailer announced. The new store will be located at Tysons Corner Center mall in Fairfax County, VA and is expected to open by mid-summer.

Blue Nile opened its first Webroom last June at Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, NY and recently announced a second location at the Westchester Mall in White Plains, NY, slated to open by early summer.

“With its tech-savvy, early adopter residents, the Washington, D.C. area is a strong market for Blue Nile and an ideal location for our third Webroom,” says Blue Nile Chief Merchandising Officer Julie Yoakum. “The Webroom is on the other end of the spectrum from traditional jewelry stores, in terms of both physical look and shopping experience. We’re going to shock some people – in a good way.”

In February, Blue Nile said it was planning to open four new stores this year.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
