One of the region’s oldest retailers, Schwarzschild Jewelers, is making a historic move… down the street to the now-developing Carytown Exchange site.

The store expects to open in mid-2023, just in time for the 125th anniversary of the business. It will anchor the side of the building facing Cary Street, which will also feature J.P. Morgan Chase, Torchy’s Tacos, a Virginia ABC store, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, Sleep Number, and other high-end retailers yet to be announced by Regency Centers and Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer.

The jeweler has been in the Cary Court Shopping Center since it opened as one of Virginia’s first shopping centers in 1954. Did you know Cary Court is on the National Register of Historic Places? The official plaque is by the center’s newest tenant, Chewy’s Bagels.

Regency Centers released renderings of what the jeweler + surrounding businesses will look like on opening day.

We want you to be the brokerwhat else would you like to see move into Carytown Exchange? For context, the development site is directly bordered by Publix + CVS, and is across the street from Dogma Grooming and Pet Needs.

There are two other Richmond Schwarzschild Jewelers locations, in Short Pump Town Center + Alverser Plaza in Midlothian. The former is surrounded by department stores such as Nordstrom and Victoria’s Secret, the latter by Conte’s Bike Shop + Cold Stone Creamery.
