Meierotto Jewelers in Kansas City has left its 12,000-square-foot building for a much larger home in a development that will also include hotels, restaurants, apartments and other businesses.

The Kansas City Star describes the new structure, which has 34,000 square feet on two stories, as a “stunner.” Features include “14-foot ceiling on the first floor and sparkling chandeliers” along with “cozy sofas in front of a fireplace.”

The business, which has 40 employees, had long outgrown its old digs.

“We want to help the business grow and expand and appeal to a whole new generation of customers,” said Meierotto, whose parents, Dennis and Carol Meierotto, launched the store in 1979.

The new store is located within the $134 million One North development in North Kansas City.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
