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.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
