GLENDALE, CA — As the pandemic continues to affect the jewelry industry, Simon G. Jewelry announced that it will begin direct-to-consumer sales at SimonGJewelry.com, with a portion of profits benefiting the retailer located closest to the customer.

“We’ve discussed shifting to direct to consumer in the past and knew what a big step it would be for the brand,” said CEO Zaven Ghanimian. “Our retail partners are the foundation of our business and to make an extreme adjustment would have to positively impact them. We came up with a strategy that gives the consumer direct access but still benefits those brick and mortars that build our business.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
