Retailers in the News

One of the leading news items that got picked up by several
news services was the jeweler who helped a Staten Island man recover from a
calamitous wedding proposal attempt at Disney World. This story gave new
meaning to “fumbling suitor.” In other retailer news, a store owner from New
Jersey is holding a wedding and honeymoon giveaway contest that has a
charitable angle. Also in New Jersey, a Wyckoff store owner made the news for
selling Fordite, a “gemstone” of sorts that is made up of old paint from Ford cars.
And, a Richmond, Va., retailer’s store renovation got some ink in the local
paper.
