Blue Nile Opening 3 or 4 Stores Next Year

Blue Nile will open three to four more brick-and-mortar locations in 2016, CEO Harvey Kanter told the B. Riley & Co. and Great American Group Consumer Conference on Sept. 16. 

Kanter did not specify the locations of the new “webrooms,” as the company calls them. So far, the company has limited the stores to states in which it charges sales tax (New York and Washington), but Kanter hinted the store may eventually venture beyond that.
