Zadok Jewelers is relocating its luxury watch and jewelry flagship into a brand new mixed development within the popular Galleria area of uptown Houston.
The new store will occupy an enormous 28,000 square feet of retail space over two floors in Post Oak Place, which is nearing completion at 1801 Post Oak Boulevard, a few blocks from Zadok’s current showroom on the same street, which is around half the size of the new property.
It is due to open in March this year.
“The decision to create a store for 2021 and beyond, as well as the decision to wrap it within a luxury mixed-use development project with office space and restaurants creates a legacy for our store, our family, and the future of retail in Houston,” says Jonathan Zadok, the jeweler’s owner.
“Our goal was a legacy store to be the future of Zadok Jewelers. It made sound economic sense to commit to building up as well, to maximize the use of the 1.65-acre site, and to surround the store with like-minded partners and complimentary businesses,” he adds.
Post Oak Place has a “Fifth Avenue meets the Meat-Packing District,” according to Mr Zadok, a reference to Manhattan’s prime luxury retail thoroughfare and its more edgy regeneration district.
Zadok is promising a new level of luxury and service at the new showroom, which will have shop in shops for Omega, Panerai, Audemars Piguet, Hublot, Jaeger LeCoultre, IWC, Vacheron Constantin, F.P. Journe and A. Lange & Sohne.
Cartier, which is working with Zadok for the first time, will arguably be the key anchor brand, with its watches presented in what Zadok describes as a “very special, luxurious lounge that will feel like a Cartier home”.
Other watch brands in the store will include Baume & Mercier, Breitling, Bulgari, Breguet, Chopard, Grand Seiko, Piaget, TAG Heuer, Tudor, Roger Dubuis and Ulysse Nardin.
A bridal area will offer jewelry from brands such as Tacori, JB Star, Fana, Simon G., Gabriel, C. Gonshor, and Zadok Collection alongside presentations from Roberto Coin, Pomellato, A & Furst, Pasquale Bruni, Chopard, Ippolita, Spinelli Kilcollin, Stephen Webster, Sutra Jewels, Nouvel Heritage, Suzanne Kalan, or Zoe Chicco and Marco Bicego.
