Marshall Pierce & Co. Opens a Two-Level Store on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue



The 5,000-square-foot showroom features mini watch shops owned by the Richemont Group

Chicago-based fine jewelry store Marshall Pierce & Co. will open the doors to its huge, newly relocated store—at 960 North Michigan Ave. in Chicago—Nov. 20. 

The 5,000-square-foot, two-level store was designed by local architectural firm Camburas & Theodore, Ltd. and resides in the One Magnificent Mile building.

The sprawling outpost was created in partnership with luxury congolomerate the Richemont Group and features seven salons (stand-alone displays), each belonging to a timepiece brand from Richemont: A. Lange & Söhne, Baume & Mercier, Cartier, IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai, and Vacheron Constantin.

The space also boasts a wide selection of bridal jewelry from brands including A. Link, Ivanka Trump, Oscar Heyman, and Mikimoto as well as a handful of collections that are new to the retailer: Marco Bicego, Omi Privé, and Paolo Costagli.

“We are very excited to start a new chapter in the Marshall Pierce legacy on the Magnificent Mile,” said Jerry Bern, president of Marshall Pierce & Co., in a statement.

Marshall Pierce & Co. was founded by Jerry E. Bern Sr. and has been in business in the Chicago area since 1928. It’s still owned and operated by the Bern family, which has roots in jewelry retail and watchmaking dating from the late 1800s.
