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.

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.
