Walmart Removes Jewelry Cases from Hundreds of Stores

Walmart has removed glass jewelry cases from about a third of its 1,000 stores, Talk Business & Politics reports.

Since April 2018 it’s been eliminating jewelry from stores where there’s insufficient demand for the products.

Those stores continue to offer “costume jewelry, watches and other accessories that hang on modular racks or spinner displays.”

Even the stores that no longer sell finer jewelry have reconfigured the department. Jewelry no longer has its own department but has, instead, been combined with shoes.

A change that’s planned for April is the introduction of an exclusive costume jewelry line called Believe by Brilliance.

The pieces will be available at all Walmart stores and online, selling for $15 to $25.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
