Retailers in the News

In the news world, it’s either feast or famine. This week,
Retailers in the News stories were like a Sunday afternoon trip to an all-you-can-eat
buffet. Topping the news is a recession-buster story out of the United Kingdom,
where two Australian businessmen commissioned a retail jeweler to create a
luxury mobile device worth £5,000,000 (or $7.9 million). Headlines claim this
is the world’s most expensive mobile device. Closer to home, Wilson & Son
Jewelers got some local ink for its upcoming Watch Discovery Event at its store
in Scarsdale, N.Y. Sylvia Stanton Black of Sylvia’s Design and Estate Jewelry,
a store based in Slidell, La., was awarded the 2010 Athena Award, which is
given to women in the Slidell community who have achieved excellence in their
profession or business, served the community in a meaningful way, and helped
other women to reach their full potential as business people and community
leaders. And finally, Weisfield Jewelers and Kay Jewelers were named in a
“Federal Way Mirror” story about 16 retail stores in The Commons at Federal Way
mall that are creating “thousands of seasonal jobs.”
