Claire’s (Hoffman Estates, Ill.) has opened its first store in Mexico, with local partner Exalta. The 1227-square-foot space is in Mexico City’s Plaza Satélite shopping complex and offers jewelry, fashion and hair accessories, toys, tech, cosmetics and more. It also features PIERCED by Claire’s, a private area at the back of the store offering that service.

“Claire’s is a beloved brand with a highly engaged audience, and as we continue to transform into a fashion powerhouse, we are dedicated to constantly expanding upon the places and ways we connect with them,” said Richard Flint, Claire’s President of Europe. “Opening a flagship store in Mexico presents an exciting opportunity to continue building on the brand’s reach through immersive experiences and is just the start of the opportunity we see in this market.”

However, Claire’s did not detail its expansion plans in Mexico. The company, which also operates the Icing retail brand, currently operates 2750 retail stores globally in 17 countries throughout North America and Europe, franchised stores in the Middle East and South Africa and a presence in more than 40 partner retailers worldwide. It also has a presence in the metaverse.



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
