Sissy’s Log Cabin re-established its Memphis presence two-fold on Friday, as the jewelry retailer broke ground on its new store location in Memphis and announced a new partnership as the official jeweler of the Memphis Grizzlies and FedExForum.
As the official jeweler for the Memphis Grizzlies, Sissy’s will be the presenting partner of the team’s floor seat experience with the Floor Seat Lounge and named first two rows of Floor Seats for Grizzlies games.
“This is an exciting time for our family-owned company, and we are eager to grow and expand our selection and services for our Memphis clients,” said Bill Jones, CEO of Sissy’s Log Cabin. “The support we have received from our friends and partners here in Memphis has been critical to our business, and we look forward to bolstering our investment in this community with a state-of-the-art storefront and a new partnership with Memphis’ professional sports franchise.”
Anthony Macri, vice president of Partnership Marketing for the Memphis Grizzlies said the franchise is grateful for the support from Sissy’s and is happy to see the jewelry company increase its presence in Memphis.
“By enhancing the Grizzlies fan experience, both for floor seat holders through the lounge and through custom branded jewelry they will design and produce, Sissy’s has demonstrated their commitment to the city and the region. We look forward to growing our partnership together,” said Macri.
Sissy’s plans to relocate its current Memphis store in early 2023 to a new storefront just ten miles east of the Grizzlies’ domain, at 4542 Poplar Avenue in the Laurelwood Shopping Center area, bringing new life to the former location of Rafferty’s. Construction of the new, free-standing structure is set to begin later this year.
“Laurelwood Shopping Center prides itself on providing the best local retail experience in our great city,” said Cory Prewitt, president of Laurelwood Shopping Center. “Sissy’s Log Cabin has made an immediate impact on the retail landscape in a short time, and we are thrilled to continue this long-lasting relationship. Sissy’s commitment to excellence, customer service, and community involvement make it a perfect fit for Laurelwood.”
Designed by architect Jesse Balaity, the new 9,000- SF store will be the newest addition to the Laurelwood Shopping Center. The building will be surrounded by green space and ample parking, with dedicated security and modern structural elements with designated space for Sissy’s expanded lines such as Rolex and Cartier, diamonds, estate jewelry and more. The current Sissy’s location in Laurelwood will remain open during construction.
Sissy’s Log Cabin currently has locations in Pine Bluff, midtown Little Rock, Conway, Jonesboro and Memphis, with a sixth storefront in progress at The Promenade at Chenal in west Little Rock.
