Kendra Scott is among retailers nationwide closing stores due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The company announced that all of its locations will be shuttered March 16-29. Kendra Scott’s website lists 100 U.S. stores in 35 states and the District of Columbia.

In a video posted to YouTube, Scott, CEO of the eponymous company, said the company was built “with family as our first pillar.” She noted that she is taking care of her own elderly father following recent medical treatment and that the crisis “hits home in a very real way.”

“This was not an easy decision and is one made with the best interest of not just our employees, but our communities and country in mind,⁣⁣” she said.

The company is “working with all of our retail employees as we extend our paid time off policies,” Scott said. The business will seek ways to help communities through philanthropy.

Kendra Scott will continue selling online.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
