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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
