We hope everyone is doing well and has recovered from Hurricane Sandy. All of us here at Samuelson’s were working through the storm to bring you the best in diamonds! Ron was quoted in National Jeweler Magazine on Monday:
In Baltimore, Ron Samuelson kept his store, Samuelson’s Diamonds, closed on Monday. But that is nothing unusual–the store is always closed on Monday. Tuesday, however, will be a different story.
“It doesn’t look like we’ll be open but we’ll just have to keep in touch with everybody,” he said, noting that he doesn’t anticipate a great amount of damage to his downtown Baltimore store but also doesn’t think people will be out shopping for jewelry.
“Even if it were OK to go there, I don’t anticipate that many customers that would be coming in. We are just going to play it by ear,” Samuelson said.
His company also has two appointment-only locations, one in Washington, D.C. and one in the Baltimore suburbs. Appointments at both of those locations had to be put off on Monday.
“I don’t think that we’ll lose anything because most people will reschedule their appointments and still come in,” he said.
As for his Baltimore jewelry store, Samuelson is hoping that it won’t have to remain closed past mid-week. “I hope that Wednesday we’ll be up and running,” he said.
