After Cassie Uhl launched Zenned Out on e-commerce website Etsy, she opened a physical store in Tempe, AZ to sell her handcrafted jewelry and has since become known for her sustainable business practices, the East Valley Tribune writes. “We live in such a throw-away society,” she told the news outlet. “Whenever I go into jewelry stores like Charming Charlie or Claire’s, I physically tense up a bit.” As such, Uhl uses recycled metals to craft her designs and recycled materials for packaging, the article says, noting that each piece is “completely handmade” and takes about two days to create.

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.”
