It’s thought to have been an electrical fire.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help European Designs & Manufacturing recover following a fire on Chicago’s historic Jewelers Row.

The business in the Mallers Building at 5 S. Wabash Ave. caught fire at about 2 a.m. on April 25, according to the GoFundMe page set up by Mario Macias. It’s owned by Eva and Hubert Sawasciuk.

According to the page: “Eva and Hubert Sawasciuk are two of the nicest people within the jewelry industry. They have helped so many of us over the years, now it is time for us to help them. If you wear a fantastic piece of jewelry that was manufactured in Chicago, odds are good that European Design & Manufacturing helped in part of the manufacturing process. Let’s come together and help them recover from this fire.”

Fire officials believe the cause of the fire was electrical, the Chicago Tribune reports. Firefighters rescued two people, and two firefighters were injured battling the blaze, officials said.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
