The announcement that Signet Jewelers is acquiring the owner of Zales in a $1.4 billion deal means that CTSW jewelry clients are watching for impact on their consignment agreements with Zales. “We need to see how this plays out,” explained CTSW's Joe Vann. “How exactly will the deal close, and will the Zale corporate entities that have signed the agreements remain the consignee? We're tracking these developments for our jewelry clients, and we hope the deal results in greater business opportunities for all of them.”
