Evans Jewelers profiled in trade publication

The move of Evans Jeweler from Third Street to a dramatically renovated building on Market Street has garnered industry attention.

The July issue of Southern Jewelry News has a front-page story with the headline “Evans Jewelers creates a local ‘Destination’ hot spot.”

Evans tells the trade publication that his aim in making the building move was to create a destination where shoppers feel comfortable and are treated like family. “Throw in a few cigars and a glass of wine with your diamonds and you’ve got a recipe for success,” the story says.

“I enjoy good wine, a good cigar and fine jewelry and thought other people would too,” Evans told the publication.
