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.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
