Insider Tips for Friday’s Cocktail Party at Borsheims

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Are you ready to party with thousands of your closest shareholder friends while checking out some of the world’s most amazing jewelry, watches, and gifts?

Get ready! Because the party at Borsheims starts in just a few short hours!

Here are some helpful tips for getting the most out of your Friday night Berkshire Hathaway shareholders weekend kick-off party:
  • Plan ahead for parking. It will be tight and some of the businesses near Borsheims will tow if you park in their lots. My ideas: carpool, Uber or taxi, or ride the Borsheims shuttle from Westroads that runs from 5:30-10pm. There will be a lot of signage up to direct you at Westroads.
  • Bring your patience for the bar and buffet. We have two of each – a full set-up inside Regency and a full set-up in the tent outside. They’re both usually packed with long lines, especially when the party begins at 6pm.
  • You want to dance? Hit up the tent outside. We’ve got a great band playing! Bluehouse is a local favorite!
  • Shopping is a bit tricky on Friday night with all the people. If you’re serious about shopping, we recommend arriving earlier in the day to allow you the best shopping experience. You can still shop Friday night, but moving around the store is a bit more difficult.
  • Bathrooms? The porta-potties outside might be your best bet. Otherwise there are restrooms back by the fountains in Regency or through Borsheims gift gallery near customer service.
  • Remember it’s a cocktail party! Bring your cocktail party attitude and get ready for some fun! You’ll be mingling with other shareholders, getting an eyeful of beautiful jewelry, and enjoying the excitement that Berkshire weekend always brings.
We’re so glad to have you here! If you have any tips – or any questions – hit me up at the shareholder info booth at Borsheims or leave a comment here.

The Omaha World Herald watched for a bit yesterday as Warren Buffett sold to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders inside Borsheims.

Here is their article about his “lucrative shift” behind the sales counter.

Did Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger talk this morning?

I’m sure they did… but we didn’t get to see or hear any of it.

We were here.

And we were swamped! You all must have read about the great jewelry deals we had going that were ONLY good for today and ONLY good at the CenturyLink Center.

We sold out of several of the items in the first few hours.

We stil have some left, though. So if you’re shopping this afternoon, stop by and see what we can get you.

And hopefully, the lines will be a bit shorter now.

Thanks for shopping at our Borsheims Booth!

I’m sure we’ll catch up on all of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger’s wit and wisdom soon.

Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Could Make History

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

At Borsheims, we always bring in exceptional jewelry, watches and gifts to showcase for our Berkshire Hathaway shareholders during the annual meeting. This year, we’re offering one customer the chance to make history!

Borsheims is presenting a 35,80 carat rough diamond for sale.35 carat rough diamond offered for sale to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders

But the offer doesn’t stop there. The customer who purchases the diamond will journey to Ontario, Canada to work with a master diamantaire to determine the final polished shape of the diamond. That will make this the largest diamond ever mined, cut and polished in Canada.

The diamond originates from the Victor Mine, which is operated by De Beers Canada. The mine is located on the James Bay Coast of Northern Ontario and it produces some of the world’s rarest diamonds.

The customer who purchases the diamond will journey to Sudbury, Ontario, and get a look into the diamond pipeline that is very rarely seen. Once they select the shape for the stone to be cut, the diamond will be cut and polished, then sent via armored car to the Forevermark Diamond Institute in Belgium to be graded and inscribed with the Forevermark logo and a unique identification number. The customer can continue to customize their diamond by having a special message inscribed on the girdle and by choosing a unique faceting pattern to be added to the culet of their diamond.

What an experience!

The price? It’s $2 million retail, but you know we’ll give a much better Borsheims price, plus a Berkshire Hathaway shareholder discount!

Come check it out in the store during Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders weekend and chat with one of our great sales team if you’re interested in making history!

Nebraska Furniture Mart Picnic

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

There seemed to be as many people picnicking as shopping at Nebraska Furniture Mart tonight – and that means huge crowds! The food smelled delicious and the shareholders seemed to be enjoying the cooperative Nebraska weather. What a gorgeous day and a great crowd!

Berkshire Hathaway shareholders who staked out spots early for this morning’s annual meeting had plenty of reading material. The Omaha World Herald published a special Berkshire Hathaway edition.
