The Woodmen Edition this week caught up with Eddie McNulty, owner/operator of McNulty’s Jewelers. Clients agree that combining service excellence and a customer-friendly environment is what makes McNulty’s unique from other jewelry outlets. McNulty next month will open a branch in Black Forest. He offered the following comments:
Where were you born?
I was born and raised in Hyattsville, Md.
What brought you to Colorado Springs?
Believe it or not, the jewelry business brought me here. For a time I worked at jewelry shops in Texas and jewelry stores here were sending business down there. I relocated to Colorado Springs and never looked back.
What do you like best about Colorado Springs?
Driving to work every day, because everything is so gorgeous, especially the snow-capped mountain peaks. It’s absolutely beautiful.
What inspired you to go into business for yourself?
I wanted to create quality products people would appreciate.
What do you offer that no other jewelry outlet offers?
We combine a work ethic and customer interaction to provide clients with a quality product and family-oriented shopping experience.
What do you like best about your job?
Having a passion for doing what I love and having fun. I am leaving my fingerprint on all I create, so the product has to be top quality.
When will you open your new facility at 11425 Black Forest Road?
Our grand opening will be held from noon to 6 p.m. May 18. We will offer appraisals, cleaning gems, jewel restoration, replacing stones, ring sizing, soldering and other services. Hours of operation will be noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The phone number is 495-8816.
Where do you want your business to be in 2-5 years?
I am not sure. I have ideas, but the economy climates always changes. Sometimes you have to roll with what you’re given.
