(PRESS RELEASE) Earlier this year, Citizen Watch America announced the Big Hearts, Little Hands initiative, dedicating a portion of online sales from Citizen and Bulova watches to Jewelers for Children, an organization founded by the U.S. jewelry industry with the mission of helping children in need.

“Citizen Watch America continues to be a proud supporter of Jewelers for Children,” says Jeffrey Cohen, president of Citizen Watch America. “We are thrilled to announce this contribution in support of the organization and to give back to the children and families.” From April 1st through June 30th, Citizen Watch America donated 10% of proceeds from each Citizen and Bulova watch sale made on their respective e-commerce websites. As a result of the initiative, Citizen Watch America was able to donate a total of $100,000, that will help children in need and their families by supporting trusted non-profits like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Make-A-Wish America, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, National CASA Association and more.

“This year has presented challenges for the entire jewelry industry, says David Rocha of Jewelers for Children.” Having Citizen step up with this amazing promotion helps Jewelers for Children continue the life-changing support we provide to our charity partners. We are humbled and so thankful for Citizen’s extremely generous support.”

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.
