Victor, NY – November 20, 2012– Mann’s Jewelers, the area’s most well-known purveyor of fine diamonds, watches, jewelry and gifts , will be expanding by opening a new store at Eastview in late summer 2013.
The family-owned jeweler, who has been operating their Monroe Avenue store in Brighton for the last 44 years, will open a second newly designed 7,000 square foot location in the soon-to-be Von Maur wing of Eastview. Von Maur, a Midwest based high-end department store, will open its first location in the Northeast at Eastview in the fall of 2013.
"This is an exciting move for us, and we think our customers will agree," said Nancy Mann, co-owner and CEO of Mann’s Jewelers. "The world-class collections we are known for - such as David Yurman, Ippolita, Stephen Webster and our fine, Swiss watch brands -will be a great compliment to what is currently offered, and what is coming to, Eastview. My brother and I are looking forward to expanding our customer base capitalizing on Eastview’s success as a super regional shopping destination."
Along with Von Maur and Mann’s Jewelers, Vera Bradley will also be opening their first Upstate New York boutique in the spring. Wilmorite plans on making an additional announcement regarding two new stores for the mall in the coming weeks.
The addition of these retailers is a direct result of mall owner Wilmorite’s ongoing effort to offer Western New York consumers the best shopping experience at Eastview. The mall, which offers more than 170 specialty stores, continues to draw the attention of many upscale retailers who currently do not have stores in the region.
"The momentum from the Von Maur commitment and merchandizing upgrades continues to grow," said Dennis Wilmot, Senior VP of Leasing & Development for Wilmorite."Wilmorite’s significant investment and diligence will culminate next fall when all the new retailers and common area improvements will open."
