Expanded Albert’s Diamond Jewelers One of Largest Jewelry Stores in Country
Thirty thousand square feet of sparkle. That’s the size of Albert’s Diamond Jewelers recently expanded Schererville showroom, making it the fourth largest privately held jewelry store in the nation. Beginning next month, the store will kick off a series of festivities to show off the new space and welcome customers new and old to a one-stop shop like no other in Northwest Indiana.
From humble beginnings in East Chicago more than a century ago, Albert’s Diamond Jewelers has grown to become a staple business in the community. The store relocated to Schererville from East Chicago in 2002, and in late 2012, Owners Fred and Joshua Halpern broke ground on the recently finished expansion, which utilized the adjacent vacant Discovery clothing store. Ask the Halperns about the decision to expand, and they’ll tell you the number one reason.
“We expanded this store to better serve our customers,” said Josh. “In addition to more space to better showcase our existing brands and new lines, we expanded and moved our repair shop, as well as our Pandora boutique, and added back-office space to make the entire customer experience seamless.”
Other additions to the store include boutiques for Cartier, Omega, and Breitling, as well as expanded space for Tag Heuer, Movado, Chopard, David Yurman, John Hardy, Mikimoto, Roberto Coin, and over 100 feet of bridal, diamond and semi-mount displays.
“We’re not just a store, we’re a destination,” said Fred. “There’s nowhere else in the Midwest that you’ll find the selection of diamonds we have in-store every day, not to mention the portfolio of designer jewelry and watches under our roof.”
He continues, “None of this would be possible without the continued support of our customers and community. We’re proud to be a mainstay in Chicagoland, and look forward to serving our customers for many, many years to come. Come celebrate with us!”
The Grand Re-Opening Celebration kicks off July 25, with a red carpet preview of the new space and special pricing of up to 70% off select store merchandise. The fun continues through August 18.
