James Avery Artisan Jewelry Opens New Discovery & Retail Center

I was honored to be invited to attend the grand opening yesterday of the James Avery Artisan Jewelry Discovery & Retail Center in San Antonio…now, the largest James Avery retail store in the state of Texas.  Not only was the store beautiful, and exciting, the Discovery Center is a new experience which allows customers to even design their own pieces and be more involved in the process through technology.

“We’re thrilled to open our second Discovery Center and Store. This location is our biggest store and
features a beautiful new design, enhanced digital displays, innovative ways to interact with our jewelry
and a designated Buy Online Pick-up in Store entrance,” said James Avery Chief Operating Officer John
McCullough. “Guests will find select products available only in our Discovery Centers and Stores.”

Customer service has always been a signature of the James Avery buying experience and it was in high gear yesterday.  The store was packed!  I wasn’t surprised because I have always known how much Texas loves James Avery.  They had extra sales associates on hand to make sure every customer left cared for and happy.

The leather goods department was so tempting…I am still thinking about one of the black handbags.  What is great now, is that I can order at James Avery Online and then run over and pick it up in the store.  This truly is one of the best places to find high quality, personal gifts your family and friends will love.

I ran into good friends, did some shopping and made some future plans to return again soon.  Yes, it was a grand opening, but it was also a party.  Everyone who works there is so friendly and some associates have been serving families for year from charm bracelets to wedding rings.  If you are near San Antonio, make sure you come by Huebner Oaks Shopping Center and experience James Avery.

  1. I love James Avery and have collected many pieces over the years. Most of them have been gifts. They have quality jewelry and great customer service.I did not realize that they had leather goods. This must be something new.

    1. It is a brand I can stand behind for their quality and it’s been a member of my family for over 30 years! Thanks Michele.

  2. My daughters and I have many pieces. I also didn’t realize they had leather goods. Tyler has a small store at the mall that is very nice. Thanks for sharing your experience, Pam.

  3. James Avery has the most beautiful designs and I have so many lovely things from there that go back many years. They are timeless and as I write this I have on a pair of JA earrings. I plan to have a look at the new store in San Antonio soon. Their main office and show room near Kerrville is worth a visit. Thank you for this entry about a place that is pure quality and excellent customer service.
