Whitehall Jewelers to Liquidate

National retail liquidation and asset recovery firms will manage a court-ordered bankruptcy liquidation sale of Whitehall Jewelers Holdings, Inc., which operates 373 specialty jewelry retail stores. The sale, which will begin Wednesday, was ordered by the bankruptcy court as a result of Whitehall's Chapter 11 filing in June.

The firms who will manage the liquidation are: Hudson Capital Partners, LLC; Great American Group, LLC; Silverman Jeweler Consultants, Inc.; and Gordon Brothers Group, LLC. The announcement was made in a joint statement by the liquidation firms Tuesday.

Inventory will be liquidated at below market prices, in a sale that is expected to last approximately four and a half months, according to the statement. Merchandise to be sold will include a selection of diamonds, gold, precious and semi-precious jewelry and watches. The liquidation sale will involve 373 Whitehall store locations in 39 states, including 78 retail locations that were acquired in April 2008 from Friedman's Jewelers.
