Fine jewelry chain Bailey Banks & Biddle announced the opening of its sixth retail store location — this one in the Park Plaza Mall of Little Rock, Arkansas. This opening marked the first of four new stores set to open across the country before the close of 2011. Bailey Banks & Biddle came back to life this past year with new owners following its closure due to bankruptcy of Finlay Enterprises.
The Little Rock location will feature Bailey’s Design Studio, a concept that embraces open diamond engagement ring cases which in turn encourage customers to help themselves and try on rings at their pleasure. The store will also showcase the A. Jaffe, Lorenzo, Chad Allison and Memoire diamond brands.
”Park Plaza is the premier retail location in Little Rock,” said the store’s general manager, Magidah Ake. ”We are thrilled to make available Bailey’s fine quality jewelry and engagement rings to the community.”
Bailey Banks & Biddle also has stores in Plano, Austin and Houston, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri and King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. The retailer plans to open soon in Pleasanton, California; Estero, Florida, and Woodbridge, Virginia.
