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.

London CEO Mark Udell wrote in the company’s application for aid that it requires new HQ space “in order to remain competitive within its industry.”

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

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
