What makes Leo Alfred Jewelers in Dublin, Ohio, a special place? It’s a poignant subject these days. Tom Laudick, who has been in the jewelry industry for much of his life, retires this year but leaves an indelible mark on the next generation.
“Every jeweler feels what they do is special, and it is - we all just do it differently,” says Kevin Laudick, co-owner at Leo Alfred and Tom’s nephew. “Retail jewelry really is very simple, and Tom knew it best when he came up with our business model: ‘We are here to help our customers acquire, maintain and dispose of fine jewelry.’ Sounds simple, right? It is, because all we have to do is provide quality merchandise at a fair value and do it with exceptional service. That’s it. If we do that we have nothing to worry about.
