Warwickshire jewellers Tustains has announced plans to triple the size of its showroom as part of a “major investment” planned for the summer.
The firm, which has been based in Leamington for more than 120 years, will undergo a significant expansion this year in a move which is expected to create several new jobs for the town.
The independent jeweller will revamp its watch showroom after experiencing an increase in demand for its Swiss and luxury watches.
Work on the refurbishment is expected to start in July, with the company claiming the four-week refit will help the business continue to grow and create more space to accommodate its expanding product range.
Tom Milner, Co-Director of the Regent Street jewellers, said: “This is a very exciting time for Tustains and we are delighted to be able to announce a major investment in our Leamington store, which once completed will create a small jobs boost for the town.
“Last year, we identified a real need to expand our offering as part of our ongoing partnership with the world’s leading luxury watch brands. Sales have been particularly strong and this investment will ensure that we remain at the forefront of the industry.”
Meanwhile, the refurbishment will also see the store designate the lounge on its mezzanine level to wedding and engagement rings.
Tustains, which stocks fine jewellery and Swiss watch brands such as Omega, Breitling, TAG Heuer, Mikimoto, Longines, Georg Jensen and Mont Blanc, was founded in 1895 and was acquired by brothers Tom and Joe Milner five years ago.
The store will remain open during the refurbishment.
