KERRVILLE, TEXAS — James Avery, a family-owned jewelry retailer, announces the early September opening of their first Missouri location in Des Peres, a suburb of St. Louis. The new store at West County Center will feature an extensive selection of predominantly hand-crafted jewelry, with designs in sterling silver, 14K gold and gemstones.
Howell Ridout, Vice President of Branding and Development, remarks on the new location: "The traditional values but progressive thinking we encountered in St. Louis has always felt like a natural fit for us and the research supported this. While there are several great centers in St. Louis, we can think of no better place to begin than at a proven winner like West County Center. Our team is looking forward to connecting with the people in the St. Louis community."
Established in 1954, James Avery's corporate mission is "to share life, love and faith through the beauty of design."

James Avery at West County Center will be the company's second venture into the Midwest following the planned opening in April at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City. This new location in the St. Louis area is part of the company's ongoing growth strategy focused primarily in the Midwest and Southeastern United States.
