Chicago Burberry Robbed Twice in One Week

Armed robbers forced entry to the store on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.





The Burberry flagship on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue was hit by burglars yesterday for the second time this week, reports ABC 7 Chicago.

Early Thursday morning, six men, two armed with guns, reportedly pried open the doors, entered the store and fled with as much merchandise as they were able to carry, said police. On Tuesday morning, police report that five burglars broke in and stole merchandise. In Tuesday’s incident, a nearby Moose Knuckles location on East Walton Street was also robbed in a similar fashion.

It’s unclear if the incidents are related.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
