Zale Corporation, a leading specialty retailer of fine jewelry in North America uses its leverage to initiate and build upon its relationships with customers. Zale is propelled by a diversified portfolio of brands that includes Zales Jewelers, Zales Outlet, Gordon's Jewelers, Peoples Jewellers and Mappins Jewellers of Canada, and Piercing Pagoda.
Zale is driven by three core product categories that cater to each consumer segment with varying intensity. The bridal category, a differentiating factor for a fine jeweler, enjoys consistent, stable demand and establishes lifelong customer relationships. The fashion segment inspires gift giving and self purchases while allowing the Company to maximize the peak holiday periods. The watch business provides additional brand appeal, enhancing the Company's ability to further drive traffic.
With over 2,150 locations throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, Zale dominates the mall environment on a national scale. As the highly fragmented industry continues to consolidate, Zale is in excellent position to further increase its market share. The Company continues to increase its exposure in the industry, having successfully integrated its two most recent acquisitions and having developed an off-mall strategy to capture a customer base outside the traditional mall.
Zale is poised for future growth with a solid and straightforward balance sheet and expected strong annual free operating cash flow. Zale continues to improve its business with a focus providing an “unforgettable” customer experience and on quality merchandise assortments. The Company's strong financials, its focus on improving the core mall business, the streamlining of its organization, and its ability to identify growth opportunities positions Zale to meet its objective of enhancing shareholder value.Our Brands
