Jewelry Store Closing After 60+ Years … But There’s a Twist

There’s good news.

As Scoville Jewelers in downtown Glens Falls, NY, closes its doors, another jeweler plans to take its place.

Regional chain Northeastern Fine Jewelry plans to open in the space, with a grand opening to be held in February, the Glens Falls Post-Star reports.

The newspaper reported in November that Scoville Jewelers would close, with the owners to retire. Husband-and-wife Chris Scoville and Debra Vales planned to travel worldwide to “search for an eventual winter residence on par with their summer home in Lake George,” according to the Post-Star.

The business opened in 1952 with Scoville’s parents at the helm. When the closing was announced, Scoville said the couple would hold onto the buildng and rent it out.

And that’s what he did.

Northeastern Fine Jewelry has signed on for a five-year lease, and a renovation is now planned.

The newspaper quoted Scoville saying: “We are thrilled that they will provide our customers with the highest quality items and services, while continuing the tradition of a family-owned jeweler at our former location.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

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.”
