Meg C Jewelry Gallery will move to The Summit at Fritz Farm. The store will offer its custom designs and will provide remakes and repairs, and it will carry five new lines of handmade designer jewelry.

The downtown store at 119 North Mill Street will close March 29.

It’s one of the latest additions to The Summit at Fritz Farm, a mixed-use development owned by Bayer Properties, at Nicholasville Road and Man o’ War Boulevard.

The development’s growing list of retailers includes national brands including Pottery Barn and Free People plus local businesses. In addition to Meg C, Lexington boutique Morton James and Shelia Bayes Fine Jewelers at the Lexington Center have announced moves to The Summit.
