Direct-to-consumer jewelry brand Mejuri will likely be going public in the “near future,” the company’s CEO told BNN Bloomberg.

Noura Sakkijha said Mejuri, which has been endorsed by Oprah Winfrey, is being built for growth and an initial public offering. A timeline for the IPO is “not finalized yet,” Sakkijha said, “but we do see it in the near future.”

“We’re focusing on all aspects of the business so we can get to that point,” she said.

She told BNN Bloomberg that the recent Oprah endorsement was “a dream come true” and “huge for brand credibility.”

Launched in 2015, Mejuri has found a niche in self-purchasing millennial women.

Mejuri closed on a $23 million funding round in April. The company said at the time it planned to use the money to fund offline expansion and to enter new markets, as well as to focus on branding and customer experience.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
