A jewelry store in Lenoir City, TN, is closing, but its owner says not to read too much into that.

Rick Terry of Rick Terry Jewelry Designs says his overall business is on an upswing, Knox News reports.

His two other stores will stay open even as the Lenoir City location shuts down as a result of a “lease issue,” according to the newspaper. In fact, Terry has increased space at his Farragut location by 2,300 square feet.

“Now we’re triple the square footage,” he explains.

The Lenoir City location’s employees and leftover stock will transfer to the remaining stores — the other one is in downtown Knoxville. Its last day is Oct. 27.

The expansion in Farragut includes both showroom and jewelry production space.

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.”
