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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

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.”
