The CEO is seeking ‘newness.’

Bloomberg reports that Tiffany & Co. has opened a “secret” New York workshop focused on innovation.

Jewelers there are developing prototypes of products the company hopes will fuel a burgeoning rebound. Bloomberg notes that Tiffany’s revenue grew more last quarter than it had in any other quarter over the past six years.

Alessandro Bogliolo, CEO of Tiffany, was quoted saying: “We should have newness throughout the year and in the different parts of our assortment.”

The Jewelry Design and Innovation Workshop profiled by Bloomberg is a 17,000-square-foot facility located in Manhattan. It opened its doors in April and is currently hiring for a variety of positions, including engineers and designers. 

So far, 50 people work at the workshop, with 30 more to be hired. The facility is a place where “representatives from merchandising, design and the prototyping center meet to discuss new projects,” Bloomberg explains.

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.”
