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.

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.”
