Rogers Jewelers storefronts, including locations in Middletown, Liberty Twp., Miami Twp. and Beavercreek, are holding a store closing sale but will operate throughout the holiday shopping season.
Rogers Jewelers is part of Austin, Texas-based retail jewelry store operator Samuels Jewelers, which on Aug. 7 filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Samuels Jewelers operates 122 stores across 23 states. The company announced last week that it will start store closing sales at Samuels Jewelers, Samuels Diamonds, Rogers Jewelers, Schubach Jewelers and Andrews Jewelers locations across the country.
Besides its retail stores, the company has an e-commerce operation at samuelsjewelers.com.
A sale of Samuels Jewelers to another entity would prevent the closing, officials said. Interested parties have until Jan. 21 to submit qualified bids.
If a deal is not made, it’s likely locations will close next February or March, store officials said.
Store closing sales include discounts of up to 70 percent. Purchases made during the chapter 11 process are final at sale.
Roger Jewelers has 17 locations in Ohio set to close. Local stores include: Liberty Center in Liberty Twp., Towne Mall Galleria in Middletown, Tri-County Mall in Springdale, Kenwood Towne Centre in Cincinnati, Dayton Mall in Miami Twp. and Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek.
