Business Briefs: Companies set up valley shops
Making things tick in Aspen
The Officine Panerai Aspen boutique watch store in downtown has new life under female ownership.
Elizabeth Smith, daughter of respected jeweler and Panerai dealer Oliver Smith, is the new owner and manager of the Aspen boutique, which opened in March and will remain at the landmark building at 400 E. Hyman Ave.
Panerai and the Smith family have a long history. Oliver was one of the first to bring Panerai to the United States in 1998, just after the brand started wide distribution.
“We are pleased to expand our Panerai business into Aspen … as we see it reflects a great lifestyle watch for the community,” Elizabeth Smith said in a statement.
The shop will host events through Aug. 20 to highlight the brand, which dates to 1860. The Aspen boutique is open seven days a week.
