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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
