Chow Tai Fook, the world’s largest jewelry retailer, has opened a branded shop within a Macy’s store in Flushing, NY.

The store, consisting of about 500 square feet, opened on Nov. 12 offering a variety of jewelry.

“In particular, the 24-Karat gold jewellery products, designed and distributed by Chow Tai Fook, add unprecedented and unique product offerings at Macy’s Flushing store,” according to the company.

Hong Kong-based Chow Tai Fook operates more than 1,800 stores in China.

There’s no word yet on whether the company will open other stores in the U.S.

Earlier this month, Rapaport News asked Kent Wong, the company’s managing director, whether there were plans to expand retail operations into the U.S.

Wong replied: “No, we have Hearts on Fire there.”

Chow Tai Fook bought the U.S. brand for $150 million in 2014. Hearts on Fire opened a store in Las Vegas, NV, in 2012 and another in Philadelphia, PA, in 2013.

Chow Tai Fook said in July it planned to open a U.S. wholesale business.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
