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 the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
