The Centurion []

Hingham Jewelers recently completed an in-depth store remodel to celebrate its 75th Anniversary. The Centurion Store Design Columnist Leslie McGwire interviewed Michael Page, Hingham Jewelers Head of Development and Long-Term Strategic Growth, who shared his feelings below about the intricacies of the redesign in a way that all jewelers should read.

LM:  What are the two most important steps you can take before the remodel begins?

MP: “The most important step for us was determining what our overall mission was with the remodel. What did we want to accomplish with the new space? For us, creating a more open, collaborative environment was key. The second most important step was coming up with a firm plan and timeline. I had a massive spreadsheet to ensure we had all our finishes selected on time before the project started. That latter included a timeline of actual construction, and how we would continue to run the business during each stage of the project.”
