Family-owned Hingham Jewelers today welcomes its third-generation into the business.
Michael Page, known across New England for his work as a TV meteorologist, will serve as the Head of Business Development and Long-Term Strategic Growth. His primary focus will be digital growth for the store, founded by his maternal grandparents, Angelo and Helen Manjos.
He joins his parents, second-generation owners Stacey and David Page, and a team of specialists with over 100 years of collective experience.
“Having a third generation join a 72-year-old business is a testament to the longevity of Hingham Jewelers. I know my Mom and Dad could never have imagined the legacy they began in 1948. As parents, we couldn’t be happier or prouder,” Stacey says.
“Michael’s vision for the future of Hingham Jewelers, and his ability to quickly implement digital changes, has been instrumental in allowing the business to grow and succeed during the pandemic. We feel so fortunate that he is joining our team to ensure that the next generation will have the level of service and knowledge that we are known for,” David and Stacey add.
“I grew up in the family-business, cleaning the showcases after school as early as second grade, and working straight through high school and college breaks,” Michael explains. “Even while working in TV I’ve continued to help behind the scenes, with things like social media, the website, or accompanying my parents on buying trips,” he adds.
“My parents have made very wise digital investments in recent years, like getting the entire inventory online. But I see tremendous growth potential right now, especially after the pandemic. Many digital shopping habits will stick, and collectively we’ve been reminded how important locally owned small businesses are to the fabric of our community,” Michael says. “That’s why, after months of thinking about it, now seems like the right time to join full-time.”
In addition to his work for the family business, Michael will also continue his lifelong love of meteorology through his website https://www.flawlessforecast.com. Through this, Michael provides private clients insurance reports, business forecasts and will also use the platform to blog about weather.
