New logo, website convey “how we have evolved into a 21st century store.”

Greenwich St. Jewelers, formerly Greenwich Jewelers, has announced a rebranding of its name to celebrate its 40th anniversary in New York’s Financial District. Due to its origins on Greenwich Street, the store now includes "St." within its name and logo.

"Our parents, Carl and Milly Gandia, opened the store in 1976 and only changed the store’s location after the September 11th attacks, when structural damage to their building led to a move onto nearby Trinity Place," says Jennifer Gandia, who is now the co-owner of the store, along with her sister, Christina Gandia Gambale. "The new name honors our roots as a downtown New York City retail brand. But the rebranding also conveys how we have evolved into a 21st century store."

In addition to the name change, the sisters worked with New York City branding agency, Established, to create a new Greenwich St. Jewelers logo with a chiseled, artisanal look. Along with the new logo, Greenwich St. Jewelers has adopted a custom dark-blue brand color and also redesigned its website. The new colors and logo will appear in-store, online, and on the business’s new boxes and bags.

"We’ve learned what web surfing consumers want, and what drives them crazy, and we’ve committed to offering them a simple and straightforward shopping experience online, which reflects current best practices," says Christina Gandia Gambale.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
