Island Companies Ltd (ICL) has recorded strong sales at its Grand Cayman branded jewellery and crystal stores in 2012, boosted by new boutiques.

In November 2012 ICL reopened a 58sq m Swarovski Crystal Forest concept store in Grand Cayman, replacing the previous 44sq m store. The company rates the opening as a “huge success so far,” drawing cruisers, hotel guests and residents, with sales to date +24% over the previous year.

“We’re delighted to offer our customers the exclusivity of the Swarovski ‘Crystal Forest’ concept store in Grand Cayman,” said CEO Alexandre Tabacoff. “This exclusive partnership and the opening of the new boutique highlight the fact that ICL’s Swarovski store has been the number one sales volume Swarovski store in the Caribbean for four years in a row.

ICL has also announced an overall +14% year-on-year sales increase at Pandora, despite a drop in downtown cruise traffic. It opened two exclusive Pandora boutiques in Grand Cayman, one at the Island Plaza and the other at Camana Bay, in 2011.

This store has grown double-digit sales every single month in 2012, confirming Pandora as a destination store and one of the anchor stores at Camana Bay,” said Tabacoff.

“The Pandora store located downtown at the Island Plaza has also achieved positive sales results in 2012, largely due to record cruise customer sales.

“Success in this partnership came through our commitment to opening Pandora boutiques in the best possible locations on the island, paying close attention to inventory levels, reviewing inventory levels on a daily basis and ensuring our stores are always in-stock with the hottest items.”
