Store celebrates its 65th anniversary as a family business.

Miller’s Diamond Jewelry of Mansfield, Ohio, is celebrating 65 years as a family business, the Richland Source reports. According to the article, current owners Mike and Deb Miller took over the business from his father in 1997, a year after the couple returned from stints in New York City and California. Deb handles the finances, and Mike performs various tasks, including repair and sales. Mike, who worked as an actor in New York, also is CEO of the local performing arts center. The store employs two salespeople, and the couple’s son and daughter work there, too. “We sometimes say we’re in the happiest business in the world,” Mike says. “There’s a lot of joy that comes in the door.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
