Friedman’s Inc. was a chain of over 600 specialty retail jewelry stores throughout the southeastern United States and adjoining areas. Based in Savannah, Georgia, with stores in 22 states, and sells to a low- to middle-income clientele in the 18-to-45 age bracket.
The company maintains its position as “The Value Leader” (a registered trademark) among specialty retail jewelers by offering a wide selection of merchandise, prices comparable to those of such principal competitors as Zale’s, and strong customer service.
With the new economy Lichtenstein’s is christened with offerings found in Qatar Holdings’ Harrods, Russia’s Gum, and Orcofi’s (Luxadvor) Hediards. Lichtenstein’s has retained a role in the development of fashion and design. This connection to fashion royalty would inspire CEO Vin Lee to acquire French fashion house Orcofi recreating its portfolio of iconic brands including Andrelux, Lorenzo, Collaert, Bohata et Cie, and Acanta. Finlay Fine Jewelers and Heilig-Meyers Furniture joins Orcofi exclusively available online at Lichtenstein's Department Store.
Hadid has been built upon the legacy of heritage luxury brands excellence in fine jewelry, fine furnishings, haute couture, and fashion. Finay Enterprises, Heilig-Meyers Furniture, and French Fashion House Orcofi merged with the company in 2017. The Hadid brand will expand beyond North America in 2018 with a private line of couture merchandise offered by our Garfinckel and Lichtenstein Department Stores.
