Their wealth came from the likes of Walmart, which they co-founded, and eBay, which is the largest marketplace for online shopping.
But for Robertson and Hutch, they made a difference by opening the Jewelry Necklace store in Palm Beach, Florida, which was the largest retailer in Florida.
When the couple started the store, the average sale price for a pair of jewelry was $1,500, and the average price for jewelry for a single person was $15,000, according to a 2017 report by The Washington Post.
When they bought the store in February of this year, Robertson and Hobbs saw a need to open up a boutique store to help other people with the same issues as they did.
“I thought, ‘What the heck?
What am I going to do for the people who don’t have a lot of money?'”
“And so we said, ‘Let’s start a boutique jewelry store.'”
Their boutique jewelry shop quickly expanded to become the largest jewelers boutique in Palm Beaches, with over 250 locations, and they were quickly able to fill the needs of their customers.
But their success did not last.
“We had a lot to learn,” Robertson said of the brand’s transition to a boutique.
“Our store was never meant to be the largest.
It was meant to serve the community, and it didn’t do that.”
After the store closed, the couple decided to open their own boutique jewelry brand called Jewelry Stand, a company that sells all kinds of accessories and jewelry.
They’ve been able to expand their offerings to include jewelry for children, and to expand the offerings to other categories.
“Now we have jewelry for dogs, jewelry for people who are older, jewelry that’s for everyone,” Robertson explained.
“There’s no other category that I think that we’re going to continue to do better than jewelry for kids and adults,” Hutch added.
As for the jewelry for animals, Robertson said they have a “big, big inventory” of accessories.
“We have more than 300 animals that are available for sale right now, and we have a big, big selection of that,” he said.
“And we have all kinds and kinds of animals for sale,” Robertson added.
“So we have to be able to find the right pet for them.”
For now, the Hutch family has found themselves living a normal life in their Palm Beach home.
“That’s where I was born and raised, and I’m happy to be in a place where I can be where I want to be,” Robertson told The Huffington Report.
“My parents are both retired, and my dad is a veterinarian and my mom is a nurse.”
The couple also has a small but growing pet business, and Robertson has been helping to feed and care for the animals that the couple have.
“My kids love them,” Robertson laughed.
“They’re very kind, and all they want to do is eat and drink and play and be a good family.
We’ve done a lot for them.
We’re not going to stop there.”
The Hutch family is now looking to expand further in the Palm Beach area, and are working to open a new store in the coming weeks.
“It’s not going anywhere anytime soon, so we’ll see how it goes,” Robertson predicted.
