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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
