In October 1998, a new and innovative Jewellery Store was launched in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Jeff visualized this new concept in the jewellery business most of his adult life. "What we do here, is transform the jewellery buying process into a pleasant, relaxed and entertaining experience where the customer learns what we know about diamonds" The store and website have been designed to make Jeff’s customers feel more comfortable and in control of their purchasing decisions.
Having worked in his father's jewellery stores over the years, Jeff was able to develop a unique system of running a business. It became clear to him over time that customers want to be taught how to make an informed decision around diamonds and how to work with custom designs. Hence, Jeff Walters Jewellers has become a learning environment.
Running a successful Jewellery company occupies most of Jeff’s day to day activities, but like he says “I always have time for my customers”. So the next time you come into the store or have a question to ask the “boss” himself, please contact Jeff directly. You’ll be glad you did.
