“The 60th anniversary of Ross-Simons is a family celebration,” Darrell Ross, company president and CEO, said in a statement. “Our family worked tirelessly to build a successful jewelry franchise. And from our humble beginnings on Westminster Street in downtown Providence, we conceived of a pricing and service model that we still use today.”
“With local renown, we turned our energies towards revolutionizing how jewelry could be sold beyond Rhode Island without a storefront,” added Ross.
Ross-Simons began in 1952 as a single store. It now operates 14 stores in eight states.
“Like us, our generations of customers have celebrated many firsts over the years. And we have been blessed with a level of loyalty that is uncommon in the retail world,” said Ross. “As they have stood by us, it is our hope to continue to be here for our customers with the most beautiful and meaningful gifts and the very best values anywhere.”
