A new jewelry store boasting products designed and manufactured in Minnesota is now open at Woodbury Lakes.
Knox Jewelers was getting things ready for a soft opening the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 29. The grand opening set for Feb. 5, said Ryan Knox, owner.
It’s the second store for Knox Jewelers, following its Minneapolis location, where the products are created.
“We make and design everything we sell,” Knox said. “Our product is what really stands us apart. … You’re not going to find our products at any other jewelry store.”
Most jewelry stores buy items from overseas, Knox said.
“They’re worried about one thing—that’s keeping costs down,” he said. “My company’s not like that.”
Knox Jewelers focuses on wedding and engagement rings, Knox said.
The company was looking to tap into the east metro markets of Woodbury, Hudson, Wis., Stillwater and St. Paul, Knox said, and Woodbury Lakes was a good fit because of other high-end retail options at the outdoor mall.
For the first month of its opening, customers will get a free iPad with a qualifying purchase, Knox said.
Knox Jewelers is located at 9020 Hudson Road, suite 405, at Woodbury Lakes.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
