We’re pleased to announce that Erik Runyan Jewelers has been named America’s Coolest Jewelry Store 2019 by INSTORE magazine, the jewelry industry’s most trusted and respected publication. ERJ is considered a “Big Cool” store (reserved for jewelry stores with six or more full-time employees).

About the ‘Coolest’ Competition

INSTORE’s judges, made up of jewelry insiders and business experts, evaluated jewelry stores based on backstories, interiors, exteriors, marketing efforts (advertising), online presence, and what INSTORE calls “the most important intangible: individuality.”

The award, handed out every year since 2002, is available to retail jewelry stores throughout North America and the Caribbean. It represents “creative approaches to doing business as well as aesthetically-pleasing retail environments.” Nominees were encouraged to tout their store’s community outreach, their digital presence, as well as what makes their staff cool and how that translates to exceptional customer experiences.

Finalists were selected by INSTORE editors. Judges for the competition were chosen for their jewelry industry expertise as well as their knowledge of the broader business community. They rated stores on a scale of 0 to 100 in each of the designated categories.
