Kesslers Diamonds planning Pleasant Prairie store

Richard Kessler purchased 3.8 acres across from Premium Outlets

Kesslers Diamonds is planning to open its eighth location across from Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets.

Highland Park, Illinois-based Legacy Property Management Services LLC sold 3.8 acres of land between the Chancery Pub & Restaurant and the village’s water tower to Richard Kessler, the company’s chief executive officer.

Kesslers will eventually use the site for a store, said a company spokeswoman, who declined to give specifics about the new location or when it would be built.

Jean Werbie-Harris, community development director for the Village of Pleasant Prairie said Kesslers had a preliminary meeting with the village late last fall but had not yet submitted plans for the store. Werbie-Harris does not know the company’s timeline.

Like other Kesslers Diamond stores, the location will deal exclusively in diamonds and diamond engagement rings.

Founded in 1980, Kesslers currently has seven locations, in downtown Milwaukee, Germantown, Brookfield, Greenfield, Appleton, Madison and Grandville, Michigan. The company has about 135 employees.
