Retailers in the News

Leading the news for this year’s first installment of
Retailers in the News is an Attleboro,
Mass., store owner who didn’t let two record floods in five years
wash away her store—or her spirit.… A Marco Island, Fla.–based jeweler’s “Bank
Forced Foreclosure Sale” ad led many in its market to assume the store was
going out of business, which wasn’t the case.… For some, the end of a calendar
year is a time of closure, and that’s the case for J. Wetherell and Son
Jewelers, which closed its doors after 144 years.…
And Fred Meyer and Littman Jewelers received some good pre-Christmas coverage
when their exclusive product offerings caught the attention of a local reporter
