Meeting Matt from Ernest Jones

At Market Place, we like to think of ourselves as one big family, so we love nothing more than getting to know the newest members of our team. This week we’ve been getting to know Matt from one of our newest retailers – Ernest Jones.

Here’s what he has to say about life at the UK’s diamond and watch specialist, here at Market Place…

What’s your role at Ernest Jones? I am the store manager.

Have you always worked in the jewellery / watch industry? I have worked in the industry since I was 17.

How long have you been with the Ernest Jones family? I have been with the company for 12 years.

What’s your favourite – diamonds or watches? Diamonds – rare, unique and beautiful, with so much history to share with customers.

Describe a typical ‘day-in-the-life’. Every day is different when you work in the jewellery industry. Our customers have their own story to tell and reason to visit the store. It is a pleasure to help customers celebrate special moments in their life and find the right piece of jewellery to express their love.

What’s the best part of the day? Seeing our customers leave the store smiling and happy with their new purchase.

What are your goals for the store? To be known in Bolton for our amazing service to customers.

If someone was visiting Bolton for the first time and had a whole day to spare, what things would you recommend they see and do? Visit us at Ernest Jones as part of their day out at Market Place, shopping and enjoying some great food and drink!
