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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
