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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
