It’s building a 15,000-square-foot structure.

Dimo Fine Jewelry in Gainesville, GA, is expanding to 15,000 square feet from its current 3,000 in a change that Robert Dimo hopes will make the store “something like a landmark.”

It’s constructing a two-story building that will have 30-foot columns along with flourishes such as limestone siding and hand-carved stones, the Gainesville Times reports.

The owners hope to be operating in the the building by mid-May, according to the Times. The old structure will be demolished, and as many as 30 parking spots will be added.

The owners wanted to grow but didn’t want to leave the site where they’ve been since the mid-1990s.

The family-owned business started 58 years ago in Turkey, the Dimos’ homeland.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
