The family story starts with a neighborhood pawnshop in Harlem, trading in watches, jewelry, diamonds and precious metals and all sorts of personal treasures. The store later moves to midtown where it is a great success.
After 31 years in Manhattan, the business moves to Fort Lee, NJ and operates out of a private office.
We decide to plunge back into storefront and Palisade Jewelers opens on Main Street in Fort Lee. Our timing turns out to be fortunate, and our reputation grows as pioneers of the “pre-owned” watch market.
Ron joins the business. We are featured throughout the region on sports, talk and newsradio as well as in many of the area’s major newspapers (NY Times, Wall St. Journal, Star Ledger).
We move Palisade Jewelers Englewood NJ, NJ (Ron’s hometown and closer to home). We continue to support the community we love and our causes include Family Promise, Bergen Family Center, Women’s Rights Information Center, The Community Chest, the Bergen Performing Arts Center, JCC on the Palisades and the Jewish Home at Rockleigh.
Regularly heard on sports radio WFAN since its genesis, we host Michael Kay to broadcast from the store during the first year of his new show on ESPN Radio.
We launch our store on eBay bringing the same level of personal attention found in the store onto the site. We reach customers across the US and around the world, shipping to (almost) every continent. (No orders from Antarctica yet). We’re now a neighborhood store with an international following.
As the price of gold rises, Palisade is recognized as one of the region’s top precious metals buyers. We brought legendary radio personality Joan Hamburg to Englewood on several occasions for standing room only events.
“My experience buying a pre-owned Rolex from Palisade Jewelers was perfect. I did the transaction by phone. The watch arrived, exactly as described; they gave me good, attentive service.”
