Genesis Jewelers
Steve Galper, owner of Genesis Jewelers in Yorktown Heights, will spend the time to help you find that perfect piece of the jewelry that you are looking for.

Valentine’s Day is approaching quickly, which often sends people into a shopping frenzy for their loved ones. Jewelry is at the top of the list for most of these shoppers, and Genesis Jewelers is prepared to serve with its friendly staff and bountiful supply of lovely jewelry. Located in the Yorktown Heights Triangle Shopping Center, the small store can’t wait to make more clients happy this season.

It all started out with a phone call, Steve Galper, owner of Genesis Jewelers, explained.

His cousin asked his mother if Galper could go work for him. At that point, he was only 17 years old. “I got into the business through family, and I stuck with it,” Galper said. When he first opened Genesis Jewelers on his own in 1987, the store was located in Queens. Now, 30 years later, the business is running well in its 32 Triangle Center,Yorktown Heights location.

When it comes to standing out, Galper said it is all about the service you provide to your customers. If you earn their trust and make them satisfied, then your job is done.

“I take pride in what I do,” he said. While he explains that it’s impossible to open a business without a monetary motivation, his greatest incentive is making people happy. He stated that he has impressed his belief on the staff at Genesis Jewelers that, “it’s not about the money; it’s about making customers happy.”

There is a jeweler on premises that can develop any custom-ordered jewelry, because as Galper said, “If you can dream it, we can make it.” Any style and specialization that could possibly be fantasized can be created there.

Don’t let the store’s size deceive you! It has a wide variety of watches, pendants, rings, bracelets, charms, earrings, and even men’s accessories. To make it even better, there’s currently a 50 percent discount on all silver jewelry and some of the watches. Plus there is a 15 to 35 percent discount is available for all Swiss Army watches for sale in the store.

Maintaining a shop with customer happiness as the main motivation may seem too optimistic, but it really works for Genesis Jewelers. Galper stated that by keeping his customers happy, he receives a steady stream of new customers through recommendations. Those ones are even more exciting to assist, as they already have great trust placed in his store.

Jewelry stores are not simply meant for engaged or married couples to enjoy. Thanks to the tremendous selection, individuals ranging from children to elderly adults can enjoy all that Genesis Jewelers has to offer; there is something for everyone. Whether you are willing to spend a little or a lot, your desires will be addressed carefully and properly, and you will leave feeling happy.

As a way to “give back to their clients,” Genesis Jewelers will once again be having a promotion sale for Valentine’s Day, Galper said. He considers this to be a chance for them to demonstrate their thankfulness to their customers. It was clear that Galper works to fulfill his motto of making people happy above all else. He gets a lot of pleasure from serving theYorktown community and seeing his customers leave his shop smiling.

Genesis Jewelers is open Monday- Saturday from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m. To contact them by phone, call the store at 914-245-3899.
