(PRESS RELEASE) – London Jewelers announces its #LondonJewelersCares initiative, delivering meals to the courageous staff at North Shore University Hospital, Glen Cove Hospital, LIJ Medical Center, Mount Sinai Hospital, and NYU Medical Center.

As the New York region continues its fight against COVID-19, the brave men and women in our area hospitals are leading the charge. Throughout April and May, London Jewelers will donate a portion of proceeds to supply meals from local restaurants to these heroes fighting to keep us all safe.

“We are so grateful to our first responders and hospital staff risking their lives to take care of others,” said Scott Udell, co-vice president and a fourth-generation member of the London Jewelers family. “We thank them for their bravery and hope to bring them whatever comfort we can with a smile and a hot meal.”

The Udell family, who have owned and operated London Jewelers since 1926, made their first deliveries on Monday, bringing trays of hot food to COVID-19 units at several local hospitals. More deliveries are scheduled each week.

“As a small family-owned business, our goal is to treat everyone in our community like family,” explained Randi Udell Alper, London Jewelers’ co-vice president. “We want our healthcare workers to know they’re in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. We are here to show our appreciation and gratitude, and to give back to the communities that have supported London Jewelers for 94 years.”

As an additional show of thanks, London Jewelers is also offering healthcare workers 20% off purchases (with some brand exclusions) on londonjewelers.com

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
