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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
