Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 05, 2012
In 1922, the Boston Red Sox finished 8th in the American League, Prohibition was the law and the Jazz Age was in full swing. As Downtown Crossing established itself as the retail destination of Boston, the Jewelers Exchange Building in Boston opened its doors, beginning a tradition of fine jewelry, competitive pricing, and exceptional service. In 2012, the Jewelers Exchange Building builds on this legacy, celebrating its 90th anniversary and launching a campaign to remind consumers about this hidden gem.
Originally a residential district, retail establishments began moving into Downtown Crossing in the late 19th century and it soon became the hub of department store shopping in Boston. In 1841, Eben Jordan and Benjamin Marsh opened the first Jordan Marsh store, which was followed by William Filene's Sons Co. in 1881. These stores, along with Gilchrist and Kennedy's attracted more visitors, including those from the suburbs, and anchored other retail services.
Built in 1922, the historic Jewelers Exchange Building established itself as the heart and soul of Boston’s jewelry industry. When the building first opened, jewelry was one of many items available from the more than 100 retail outlets. From luggage to appliances, jewelry and other accessories, these family-owned businesses were passed from generation to generation, along with a commitment to serving the customer.
Today, nestled in the heart of Downtown Crossing at 333 Washington Street, this beautiful art-deco building is home to over 125 jewelers and expert craftsmen: manufacturers, wholesalers, importers, retailers, designers, watchmakers, pearl stringers and goldsmiths, many of whom have worked side by side for 90 years producing the finest jewelry of incredible value.
“For 90 years, we have built relationships with our customers, through all of life's moments, when a piece of jewelry means something to both the person giving it and the individual receiving it,” said Kim Murphy, a 2nd generation jeweler and a trustee of the building. “We’ve always strived to keep a customer for life through a commitment to delivering exceptional service and a quality product.”
To mark the 90th anniversary of the Jewelers Exchange Building, the individual businesses have come together to launch a campaign designed to remind customers of everything the building has to offer, including personal service, expert craftsmen creating one-of-a-kind pieces in every price range, repair services in a timely manner and above all, jewelers who have a passion for jewelry and helping customers find exactly the right piece.
From engagement rings to wedding bands, watches, or any other personal indulgence, the Jewelers Exchange Building is the perfect destination for anyone looking to purchase an item to last a lifetime.
