When the owner of Bove Jewelers in Kennett Square, PA, chose to close the business, the store’s general manager, Bob Strehlau, still felt it had lots of potential.

He bought it from George Reinas and reopened nearly a year ago, the Chester County Press reports. And things have gone so well that he’s now expanding to a second location.

Bove Jewelers will open a store in West Chester this weekend.

“We have all of the same merchandise in all categories at both stores, but at the West Chester store, it is shown in smaller, boutique-like sizes,” said Strehlau, who is a fifth-generation jeweler.

The new store is in the former location of Wright’s Jewelers.

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.
