Co-owner Mary Ann Orloff said the company is hopeful the move will be complete by mid-April.

Orloff Jewelers is currently located in the shopping center but will be moving its inventory to a larger location in Fig Garden Village. The new store is more than twice as big, as Orloff Jewelers is going from a 2,000-square foot shop to 5,000 square feet.

Orloff Jewelers is looking to increase its staff from five to 10 employees. There will also be some upgrades in the selection, which the company cannot fully announce yet.

"We're very excited about this move and our future," said James Orloff, co-owner of Orloff Jewelers, in a release.  "We will be carrying new lines that Fresno has not seen for quite some time and we will announce the details when we can.”

In September of last year, the Warner Co. announced it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but converted to Chapter 7 in January, bringing an end of 144 years of business in Fresno.
