It will add 3,000 square feet.

A planned expansion will give Burdeen’s Jewelry in Buffalo Grove, IL, the space it needs for its burgeoning collection of pre-owned watches and jewelry, the Daily Herald reports.

The store will grow by 3,000 square feet, bringing its total space to 9,100 square feet. The expansion is set for completion by November.

Store owner Matthew Burdeen has worked to ensure the store stands out in the niche of pre-owned watches, the Daily Herald reports. Josh Nigut, general manager of the business, says the department is the largest in the country.

He says: “We have 400 watches on display at any given time, and we’re shooting for 800 to 900 watches.”

The business dates to 1980, when it was founded by Burdeen’s parents, Dennis and Sandy Burdeen.

That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
