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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
