PHUKET: The island will have yet another claim to fame as what is being billed as “the world’s biggest jewelry store” opens its doors on October 10. The new emporium is on the Bypass Road north of Phuket Town. At 2,000 square meters, Gems Gallery Phuket will be the third and largest showroom operated by Bangkok-based Gems Gallery International Manufacturing Company. In 1987, the firm launched its flagship store on Rama VI Road in the capital, and five years later opened a second showroom along the Sankampaeng shopping belt on the outskirts of Chiang Mai. Assistant Marketing Manager Kengkla Jaengjetriw told the Gazette this afternoon that the company was bullish on the Phuket market because of its growing international tourist base. The site along the Bypass Road business corridor was selected for its visibility and ease of access. The branch will employ 200 people, employees, including a contingent of experts from the main showroom in Bangkok.
