London Jewelers, which runs nine upscale stores in the New York metro area, is looking to move to a new headquarters.

The company is seeking $1 million in tax breaks over a 25-year period in exchange for moving its HQ to Glen Head, Newsday reports. The company currently operates from three buildings in Glen Cove.

The company hopes to buy a vacant office building in Glen Head. It would invest $2.7 million and add seven jobs. London Jewelers currently employs 46 people at its headquarters.

London’s real estate attorney, Daniel P. Deegan, said the current space is “inefficient.” The new space would amount to 14,000 square feet.

The Nassau County Industrial Development Agency has voted to negotiate with London on the package.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
