After more than ten years in Downtown Port Coquitlam Citi Jewel Exchange is closing its retail location at 2540 Shaughnessy Street. With the lease up for renewal at the end of the year owner Nassar Silavi decided its time to cut back the workload and shift his focus to online sales at www.CitiJewelExchange.ca.
Citi Jewel Exchange opened in 2008 in Downtown PoCo in the 2600 Block Shaughnessy Street until it burned down in August 2015. It took over a year to find a new location as retail space is scarce in the downtown area. Previously Nassar had operated similar stores in Vancouver and Port Moody but decided he wanted to have his business closer to Port Coquitlam where he has lived since 1981.
Nasser an Iranian immigrant has loved having his business in Downtown PoCo. The people in PoCo have a wonderful community spirit – different than other places he had businesses. This has allowed him to be more laid back and to build relationships with his customers.
The downside is having been robbed seven times since moving downtown – three times during the day time while open and four times at night while closed. In one robbery they broke into the store beside his and cut a hole in the wall to gain access. Recently the front window was smashed and items stolen.
In addition to continue to sell jewelry online, Nasser is looking for a small office space where he can continue to provide a variety of services by appointment including
- Buy-sell-trade jewellery
- Selling pre-owned, refurbished jewelry
- Providing assessments and information on your jewelry, even if you do not want to sell
From now until the end of December when his lease expires Citi Jewel Exchange is have a big sale on hundreds of items. Come by and say hi to Nasser and Dante.
