Richter & Phillips Jewelers Magazine 2022

This year, Richter & Phillips Jewelers was nationally recognized as winning the 3rd place title for “America’s Coolest Store” in the Big Cool category for industry publisher, INSTORE Magazine.

“Every year, we feel privileged to bring our readers the best of the best in our industry,” said Trace Shelton, INSTORE’s editor-in-chief. “From its converted vault ‘speakeasy’ to its 125-year-old history to its popular ‘Whiskey & Watches’ events, Richter & Phillips certainly qualifies. But a store wouldn’t really fit our ‘cool’ criteria if it weren’t for such aspects as innovative marketing, creative retail environment and a unique work culture.”
