“For it to happen in broad daylight is one of the most terrifying things.”

Thieves took about $1 million in merchandise from de Boulle Diamond and Jewelry in the River Oaks community of Houston, KTRK-TV reports.

They used hammers to break display glass in a “million dollar jewelry heist” that was captured on surveillance video, according to the news outlet. Watch a news video about the crime, including clips of the surveillance footage, below.

The crime lasted only 40 seconds. According to Chron.com, authorities are now looking for the four people who entered the store plus a getaway driver.

“For it to happen in broad daylight is one of the most terrifying things,” an unidentified employee of a nearby store was quoted as saying.

The store was named by INSTORE in August as America’s Coolest Store (Big Cool). See INSTORE’s profile of the store here.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
