(WASHINGTON, N.C.) - If you have been buying gold the last few years and have a cash surplus built up, you might want to make a trip East, as in Eastern, North Carolina. StarCraft is closing its doors after 32 years of serving the Southeast and beyond. StarCraft will be liquidating inventory, equipment and models during its going out of business sale.
“It’s been a great run, but it’s time,” says StarCraft owner Jim Fortescue. “We’ve had the pleasure of working with employees who genuinely care about their customers and it’s been especially hard knowing that those relationships will eventually come to a close. It’s been our honor to have worked with some of the finest jewelers in the industry and that is what we’ll all miss the most.
“Usually by the time a company like ours goes out of business, any available merchandise is old and picked over. Up until a few weeks ago we were still producing new product, so we have tons of good, fresh designs from which to choose,” Jim said. “Lots of good bridal, Diamonds in Motion, loose diamonds, pearls, earrings, color and more. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity for jewelers to buy at the deepest of price cuts.”
The assets will be sold at the StarCraft facility in Washington, North Carolina by appointment only. “Little Washington is a beautiful coastal town, full of Southern charm. Any jeweler who can take the time to get here will be glad they did.”
Jim said they are in early discussion with several companies interesting in acquiring their molds and models. “The purchaser of those assets will also have the option of taking over the trademarks, digital images, catalogs, computer, account list, etc. If that happens another entity will be able to continue to supply StarCraft/LoveCraft product going forward.”
