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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
