The project is geared toward custom work.

Beeghly and Co. Jewelers in Greensburg, PA, is planning a $500,000 expansion geared toward the custom work that its younger customers prefer.

The project involves doubling the store’s space with a 1,500-square-foot addition, the Tribune-Review reports. An adacent building will be demolished to make way. Beeghly and Co. will also gain storage space with the addition of a basement. 

Brian Beeghly, president of the company, told the Tribune-Review that much of the store’s equipment will be moved to the showroom so that customers can see custom work being performed.

He noted that “the next generation” seeks “the ability to have something made with what they have in mind.”

The building being torn down previously belonged to the Greensburg YMCA. Beeghly and Co., which opened in 1997, bought it for $100,000.

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.
