History of Kay Jewelers

Kay Jewelers is a division of Sterling Jewelers Inc. in Akron, Ohio. Kay Jewelers was started in the year of 1946. As a motivated entrepreneur Kay Jewelers saw an opportunity to provide many Americans the opportunity to buy high quality jewelry at low prices. Since 1916, Kay Jewelers has boomed from one store to more than 800 all across the United States. Together with Signet Group plc, this company is the largest specialty retail jeweler on the planet. Also, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital gets a large amount of sponsorship from Kay Jewelers.

History of Littman Jewelers

Fred Meyer Jewelers owns Littman and Barclay Jewelers. Together they are the 3rd largest chain of jewelers in America. With over 100 years of experience Littman and Barclay have never ceased to satisfy their customers with fine service and quality products. Fred Meyer Jewelers acquired Littman and Barclay Jewelers in late 1998. These major acquisitions have resulted in continuous growth and profits. At the time, this jeweler combination of companies resulted in over 411 jewelry outlets in 35 different states all under the names of Barclay Jewelers, Littman Jewelers, or Fred Meyer Jewelers.

Fred Meyer Jewelers struck again in 1997 with the acquisition of Fox’s Jewelers. This resulted in major growth of the jeweler giant due to Fox’ Jewelers 44 locations all of the Midwestern United States.


The Littman Jeweler acquisition took place in late 1998. At the time, Littman Jewelers was an east coast operation having around 123 stores. This was Fred Meyer Jewelers largest acquisition. During this period, many jeweler companies were massively shrinking and/or closing. This gave Fred Meyer Jewelers the opportunity to purchase these mid-sized jeweler companies for reasonable prices. Because they were one of the biggest, Fred Meyer Jewelers was able to take advantage of the jeweler market during a hard period in time.

Whitehall Jewelers is located in 37 states and has 314 stores. They are one of the largest specialty retailers of fine jewelry in the country.
