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.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
