Longtime Nicollet Mall Jeweler Plans Expansion into North Loop

Longtime Nicollet Mall Jeweler Plans Expansion into North Loop

JB Hudson Jewelers, an anchor of luxury retail on Nicollet Mall, is set to branch out into the North Loop. As part of another expansion by Martin Patrick 3, The Loupe by JB Hudson will open in the exclusive menswear and home interiors store September 2018.

The Loupe by JB Hudson, to be housed inside Martin Patrick 3 at 212 Third Ave S, will offer unique products previously unavailable in the Midwest. Think luxurious Italian gold bracelets alongside intriguing Swiss timepieces. The Loupe will offer far more men’s jewelry than the flagship JB Hudson store, located in the historic Young Quinlan building at 901 Nicollet. The Loupe already has a queue of exclusive designers and watch brands set to host trunk shows at the new space. In addition to a standard selection of products, special events at The Loupe will offer clients an exclusive opportunity to purchase rare and collectible pieces.

Just as Martin Patrick 3 focuses exclusively on men’s fashion, The Loupe will carry on that tradition. More men are using jewelry and watches to express their individuality, and The Loupe will offer men expert advice on how to style their unique pieces with an existing or new wardrobe. This expert style advice will blend seamlessly into the authentic, relationship style of customer service that JB Hudson is known for.

The partnership between the iconic JB Hudson and the trailblazing Martin Patrick 3 is proving to be exciting for both parties. JB Hudson President, Nick Pechman, sees the partnership as an exciting opportunity to extend JB Hudson’s presence into the burgeoning North Loop neighborhood. Forbes Magazine recently lauded MP3 as ‘…the hottest retailer in America’s hottest retailing city…’ Pechman expects the heritage that JB Hudson brings (making things happen since 1885) to meld well with luxury-seekers at Martin Patrick 3. Martin Patrick 3 sees the partnership being complimentary to their model of offering unique, luxury products. Prices at The Loupe will range between $1,000 and $1,000,000.

Both JB Hudson and Martin Patrick 3 are continually focused on bringing the best experiences to their clients. The Loupe will bring the same excellence of service found in the JB Hudson flagship store to an even wider audience. The Loupe will follow the convenient hours of Martin Patrick 3: Monday – Saturday, 10am until 8pm and Sunday, 10am until 6pm.

JB Hudson is owned by the Pohlad family’s Marquette Companies holding company.
