After negotiations with landlord turn sour, jeweler to consider another location in the area.

Black, Starr & Frost has closed its location in Newport Beach, CA, company chairman Alfredo Molina announced in a statement. The decision to close the store came after the jeweler was unable to negotiate a lease renewal with its landlord, he said, adding that other retail options in the area will be explored. Black, Starr & Frost’s other location in Phoenix, AZ will remain open.

“Black, Starr & Frost has been America’s longest continually operating jeweler in America, and will maintain that title. We have made the difficult decision to close our Newport Beach salon following extensive negotiations with the landlord in which we were unable to come to a feasible agreement,” says Molina. “We are exploring retail options in Orange County, as well as future expansion into new markets. Black, Starr & Frost has proudly served Orange County for 28 years, and is committed to continuing to serve the community, including chairing the upcoming American Heart Association Heart Ball gala on June 10 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel.”

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.”
