After being destroyed by fire a year ago, Shores Jewelry in Mattoon, IL, has reopened in a nearby location.

The business, which has been operating downtown since 1948, had been renting space temporarily, WCIA-TV reports. The new building is only two block from the old spot.

“We designed this building and built this building the way we wanted it,” said owner Harold Shores. “And that’s really nice to have everything in it’s place.”

Because of COVID-19, only one customer is allowed in the store at a time. The business is focusing on curbside service.

Shores owns the new building, located on a spot that had been vacant since the 1980s. It has four additional storefronts, which Shores has rented out.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
