(PRESS RELEASE) SCHENECTADY, NY – Northeastern Fine Jewelry will support its fellow small businesses with an innovative gift card program designed to generate much-needed funds for local restaurants in light of mandatory closures due to the coronavirus global health pandemic.

With every purchase of a $50 Northeastern Fine Jewelry gift card, the local, family-owned jeweler will donate $20 to independent restaurants in the Capital Region. For example, if a customer were to purchase three gifts cards, Northeastern Fine Jewelry will donate $60 to support local restaurants as part of its “neighbor helping neighbor” program.

In honor of its three store locations, Northeastern Fine Jewelry selected three restaurants from each community where the jeweler operates to benefit from the program, including:

  • Gershon’s Deli, Mike’s Hot Dogs and Scotti’s Restaurant in Schenectady
  • Café Calabria, Café Madison and dp American Brasserie in Albany
  • Raul’s Mexican Grill, Sam’s Diner and Siam Thai in Glens Falls

Northeastern Fine Jewelry gift cards are available for purchase online at nefj.com/neighbors-helping-neighbors. Gift cards will be delivered at no charge (fees apply for expedited shipping).

“We hope this program will inspire neighborhood businesses – with the help of the community – to band together during these difficult times. Perhaps it may spur others to come up with creative ways to support their local shops and restaurants,” said Northeastern Fine Jewelry President Ray Bleser. “We know that despite the ongoing crisis, celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries and other personal milestones continue. By purchasing a gift card, you can still mark that special occasion while supporting the restaurant community.”

“The phrase ‘we’re all in this together’ means more now than ever before. While we anticipate aid for small businesses from the federal and state governments, Northeastern Fine Jewelry is leading the way in demonstrating that assistance can begin from the ground up,” said Capital Region Chamber President and CEO Mark Eagan. “We applaud Northeastern Fine Jewelry for its creative approach to show how businesses, in collaboration with their customers, can work to support one another during this critical time.”

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.”
