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.

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.”
