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.

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.”
