A look 'behind the counter' at entrepreneuring jeweler, TerryBetteridge
Greenwich Citizen - ‎3 hours ago‎

Updated: 04/21/2009 09:58:25 AM EDT
When Terry Betteridge learned that the Cash for Gold enterprise holding forth in the Hyatt Regency last week was pulling people in selling their gold and silver, he was curious. He wanted "to see what those guys are up to."

Terry has built his successful Betteridge Jewelers business "organically," he said, taking advantage of what comes along, and learning by doing.

"Knowing nothing" of his father's jewelry business until he was called to its rescue in 1975 was the key to his success, he believed. "I didn't understand modern (jewelry) fashion at all. I kept being a kid through college. All I knew was the old stuff. I'm a history freak. I go to auctions. I knew there was an under bidder. I figured it out."......

...."We made $300,000 the first year," he said. "As of a year and a half ago we made $100 million."......

.....Three years ago Terry brought in veteran Greenwich police detective, Cornell Abruzzini, as his in house security man, who has taken Terry's security to state of the art.

"We have a triple redundancy security system with recordings going on off site," said Abruzzini. Betteridge employees in all locations have been trained by Abruzzini to spot those sleight of hand con artists, and to identify fraudulent credit cards.

Abruzzini will soon have a higher profile as Terry is placing him on the street to patrol the immediate area of Betteridge and be a lookout for other jewelers located nearby. He was offering his own security guard in place of the Elm Street "corner cop," lost to police Chief David Ridberg's new cost cutting measures Terry told the RMA. It was a corner cop that helped foil the 2006 robbery of Terry's store.......
