NEW YORK — After showing some sparkle during the holiday season, jewelry specialty retailers are poised to continue to dazzle in 2003.
Reeds Jewelers, Friedman’s Inc. and Zale Corp. all posted increases in their comparable-store sales during the Christmas season. Lacking that level of sheen at the end of the year was Finlay Enterprises, which reported a decrease in its holiday comps.
