WatchBox’s founders and leadership believe that physical locations and high-touch personal service in key global markets are invaluable to the widespread acceptance and understanding of the luxury pre-owned watch category. Following the launch of WatchBox divisions in Hong Kong, South Africa and Switzerland, the expansion within the U.S. represents the next phase of strategic growth for the company. The recent acquisition of Chronofy, the valuation subscription service for pre-owned watches, provides WatchBox with the infrastructure and technology to take its services to a network of retailers.

Amanda Ellison, global president and chief operating officer of WatchBox, added, “WatchBox is thrilled to bring our pre-owned buying, selling, and trading practices to Hing Wa Lee Jewelers. Their stellar reputation and standard of excellence make Hing Wa Lee the perfect inaugural partner for our network. Through this partnership, WatchBox formalizes the intersection of the primary and secondary watch markets, which means that Hing Wa Lee is now equipped to offer what today’s watch consumer is seeking – a trustworthy partner for the buying, selling and trading of both new and pre-owned timepieces under one roof.”

Hing Wa Lee’s buying, selling and trading services commence at the company’s locations in San Gabriel and Walnut, CA. WatchBox’s extensive inventory is now presented on hingwaleejewelers.com/watchbox in the WatchBox Digital Corner, as well as through interactive digital showcases in each of Hing Wa Lee’s stores.

A celebratory launch and trade-in event is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8, at Hing Wa Lee’s Walnut location, during which a selection of exceptional pre-owned watches will be exhibited and available for sale and WatchBox representatives will be onsite for complimentary valuations.

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.”
