Premier Jewelers, one of Jacksonville, Florida’s best-known independent Jewelry Stores has changed hands this past May. After 18 years of business, owner Glenn Nedrow has handed the reigns over to Master Jeweler Tim Le. Glenn knew that Tim would take care of his customers and business and strive to keep Premier Jewelers a 5 star rated Jewelry store.
For past clients, you are assured the same quality work you have received at Premier Jewelers for the past 18 years. For future clients, you will be getting a master jeweler who has been a fixture at Jacksonville’s Major Malls, Minor Malls and Jewelry stores. Tim has been moonlighting across Jacksonville’s jewelry stores, and has been pulled in many directions. As his reputation and talents have grown, so have demands for his time and expertise. Tim now has his own “One Stop Jewelry Repair Shop” right in the heart of Southside Jacksonville. Premier Jewlers is a short drive from the big mall, with the big parking lot, and long walk. At Premier Jewelers skip the traffic and the big prices. Talk straight to the Master Jeweler!
Tim Le said the deal was a win-win for all parties for several reasons.
“The retail store will give him a venue to showcase his jewelry repair and expertise. Since the the middleman has been eliminated, we’ve also eliminated the commissions paid to other jewelry repairmen” he said. Tim also has a passion for Jewelry and has added merchandise.
“We’ve never had this intensity of inventory. It’s surreal in terms of quality, variety, dimension and size.”
