The Helzberg Diamonds at the corner of the Tysons Corner Center food court is temporarily closed as the store seems to be mid-takeover for the adjacent vacant space.

The diamond store seems to be devouring the former Wetzel’s Pretzels, which closed earlier this month.

A sign at the construction-barrier notes that Helzberg Diamonds can still be found at a temporary location near the Lord & Taylor on the mall’s first floor.

The move leaves Pokeworks surrounded by empty space after Sweet Leaf’s closure, which was a part of a recent series of casualties in the first floor of the food court.
