One of the country’s fastest growing jewelry retailers is coming soon to Destiny USA. Alex and Ani, a Rhode Island-based organization, is opening it’s first stand-alone store in the Syracuse area. The closest stand-alone store to this area is currently located in Victor, New York.
The company, founded in 2004 by Carolyn Rafaelian, makes very popular gold and silver stackable charm bracelets. According to the company’s mission statement, Alex and Ani wanted to produce jewelry that “ adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit.” The name Alex and Ani comes from the first names of Rafaelian’s two daughters.
The store will be located on the second level of the mall. According to a press release from Destiny USA’s Assistant Marketing Director Joanne Villegas, the store will open “just in time for the gift-giving season.” Sound like the store will be ready in time for Christmas shopping!
