Everyday Chic Boutique and Rome Jewelers are renovating, expanding, and providing Wilmington with a new destination point. Both companies announced that they will be moving into the historic Samuel Walker building, built in 1914, located at 64 W. Main Street.

“We’ve got big plans,” said Karli Harris, owner of Everyday Chic Boutique. “Both stores will be expanding.” Patrons of both stores can look forward to a larger selection of products and a more open and inviting shopping space.

Marci Meintel, manager at Rome Jewelers, said, “We are substantially increasing floor space for PANDORA and Bridal, along with private parking for both stores.”

Additional renovations to the building include the development of two apartment living spaces above the stores, more check out areas, a bridal showroom, and an overall showroom that is 3,000 square feet in size for Rome Jewelers.

“We have been looking forward to being in the right location, and this is a great opportunity for both businesses,” said Joe Sodini, owner of Rome Jewelers. “We plan to give back to the community that has supported us so much”

The renovations are underway and both businesses are looking to open their stores this April. A grand opening event is expected in early spring. Representatives from both stores indicated they are very excited about soon being located on Main Street.
