It will launch in May.

Luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, whose portfolio includes Bulgari and other jewelry and watch brands, is planning a broad-based e-commerce site, the Financial Times reports.

The site is slated to launch in May. It will be called Le Bon Marché, which is the name of a department store that LVMH owns in France.

The site will sell all of LVMH’s brands plus those of other luxury-goods companies, according to the Financial Times.

Business of Fashion reports: “It is unclear if the new online iteration of Le Bon Marché will operate on a wholesale or marketplace model, although wholesale is the likely avenue.”

The new e-commerce effort will put LVMH in competition with sites such as Farfetch, Net-A-Porter and Matchesfashion.com.

In addition to Bulgari, LVMH’s extensive brand catalog includes names such as Hublot, TAG Heuer, Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton.

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.”
