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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
