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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
