Meet Mitch Lawitz of Mitch’s Beads in Gilbert

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mitch Lawitz.

Mitch, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
When I was a young man my father, Norman Lawitz, started his journey in the bead business. He was the original owner of Beads Galore International Inc. I helped my father all through high school and college where I learned all about the business. We closed Beads Galore in November 2016. I started my new adventure with my wife, Lisa Lawitz, when we opened, Mitch’s Beads in January 2017.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When opening up the new business, I was not aware of the financial struggle to get the store front up and running. Plus there are obstacles with competing against online businesses. But one thing is for sure there is something to say about being able to hand pick and touch beads before purchasing them. This was one of the main reasons why I wanted to open Mitch’s Beads.
