Success at Rohr Jewelers Inc. is less about sales figures and growth and more about relationships, owner Sam Hill believes.
Hill bought the business in downtown Milwaukee in 2000 and has put his stamp on the 89-year-old store, 813 N. Jefferson St. He acquired the store after 10 years working as an apprentice at a jewelry store in Richmond, Va.
He had looked at other stores, but “I liked the feel of this. It’s in a great location. It’s manageable for a small shop, which I like, because you can focus on people more than trying to do volume.”
Hill increased the store’s selection of pearls and added his own jewelry designs to the merchandise mix. The store also carries a wide variety of handpicked colored stones and unique jewelry from designers both in Wisconsin and around the world.
