5 Things We Never Knew About: Monica Rich Kosann

  1. “I was a child model and actress. I was all eyes so I was always picked to play the sad child.”
  2. “I always wanted my mom’s charm bracelet. She gave it to my sister, but no worries — I started my own collection!”
  3. “Everyone in my family calls me Gracie. As in Allen. Maybe it had to do with the time I put a fairly large deposit into the mailbox by accident.”
  4. “My middle name is Agnes. I can deal with it now.”
  5. “My first job out of college was working at Bloomingdale’s as an assistant buyer in hosiery. I had to take returns of dirty hose.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
