Frank Jewelers Receives Prestigious Citizen Elite Retailer Award in May

Freeport, Illinois — Last month, Frank Jewelers was awarded the Citizen Elite Retailer award, a prestigious honor that is presented to only 400 independent fine jewelry retailers across the United States.

“We were chosen specifically because of the dedication that we give to the brand by continually training our staff and showcasing the most extensive Citizen product line in the region,” said Gary Fontana, owner of Frank Jewelers. The retailer is also known for having a dedicated Citizen gallery in their showroom — a fact that is not lost on the sales managers at Citizen Watch Company USA.

For over 70 years the Freeport-based showroom has continually served the local community with distinctive high-quality jewelry and Swiss timepieces, and their staff’s commitment to excellence and customer service helped the business develop a dedicated customer base over the years. The Citizen Elite Retailer award is more proof that the Fontana family knows what they’re doing when it comes to fine jewelry.

Now that Frank Jewelers is a member of this exclusive Citizen retailer club, what can their clientele expect next?

“An even greater and more robust selection of Citizen products, including exclusive limited edition pieces that are only available to Elite retailers,” stated Fontana.

Fans of the watchmaker should keep an eye out for exclusive Citizen events in the future that will showcase the product line and new releases. Additionally, Frank Jewelers plans to enhance their website with an updated Citizen shopping experience — a plus for local watch aficionados that enjoy looking browsing a store’s selection online before visiting the brick-and-mortar location.
