James Avery Jewelry has opened a 53,600-square-foot production facility in Kerrville, TX, and relocated 300 employees.

The workers moved to the new Kerrville Craftsman Center from the company’s main Kerrville campus and current facility in Comfort. When fully occupied, the new building will accommodate over 500 employees.

The facilities the company had were unable to accommodate the needed increase in workers, said George Lee, executive vice president of manufacturing and product development at James Avery. Additionally, “the relocation in Kerrville will also allow us to repurpose existing buildings to support the strong growth we are experiencing throughout the company,” he said.

James Avery Jewelry is a family-owned company that operates 73 stores in six states. Its jewelry is also available in 188 Dillard’s stores in Texas and in 27 additional states, and nationally through JamesAvery.com.

James Avery crafts jewelry in several Texas workshops.

The new facility is located along the banks of the Guadalupe River on 30 acres across from the Kerrville Municipal Airport on Highway 27.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
