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.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
