Pretty soon, he'll be able to go to Jared's. 

The newly opened CAVA Restaurant near Francis Scott Key Mall will have a new neighbor as construction has begun on a Jared The Galleria of Jewelry store. The location will be the company's first in Frederick County and 10th in Maryland, according to the company's website. 

The location, at 5617 Spectrum Drive, has already received construction and plumbing permits for the single-story building, according to the Frederick County Division of Planning and Permitting.

In April, Signet Jewelers, the parent company of Jared, Kay and Zales jewelry stores, announced in its quarterly earnings report it would close 150 stores. 

Last fiscal year, Signet closed 232 stores in North America. By next February, the company predicts it will have shuttered 13 percent of its store base in the last three years.

I wish they had kept the Double T Diner there, rather than replace it with these two.


So this company will have three stores in the same location, selling the same merchandise?


Jared is a higher end store than Kay or Zales, but owned by the same company. Think like Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy. All the same company, but different product. However, I completely agree that Kay and Zales have the same merchandise.
