Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry, a division of Signet Jewelers in Akron, Ohio, is planning a store at Lindale Mall in Cedar Rapids.
Signet Jewelers is the corporate parent of Jared, Kay Jewelers, Zale Corp. and nine regional brands.
Frank Cirillo of Signet Jewelers said in an email that the Jared store at 159 Collins Road NE on the perimeter of Lindale Mall, at the former Burger King site, is expected to open in the fall. Cirillo said more specifics will be available closer to the opening date.
Signet contends a Jared location houses five times the selection of a conventional jewelry store. Brands include Tolkowsky, Leo Diamond, Neil Lane Bridal and Neil Lane Designs, Le Vian, Lois Hill, Pandora, Hearts Desire and Earthly Treasures Smithsonian.
A permit filed with the city of Cedar Rapids in late May shows a 5,229-square-foot building. The structure will include a retail store, seating area, repair shop, sales area, vault, training room, two diamond rooms, a credit department, inventory control, manager's office and children's play area.
Lindale Mall management referred inquiries to Goodman Public Relations in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Jared operates a store in Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines.
