TIM AND SUZANNE FOSTER’s historic store, with its distinctive German clock hanging out front, was built in 1872, and taken over by the couple in 1982. With such a well-preserved premises, it was natural that the interior design should follow the lead of the outside, with wooden fittings and ceiling, and large windows at the front of the store to brighten up the space and let customers peer in at the range of designer jewelry, and salespeople look out at the bustle of village life as it passes by. The original building had one large structural beam running the length of the store. To add to the look, additional faux beams were added.

Our panel loved the warmth of the building enhanced by the wood and flowers within. “Lots of old-fashioned charm,” says Karen Karch, with Anne Sowden adding, “I love the warm woods and warm colored fabrics. I could snuggle up here for the winter.” Bob too liked the “strong interior presentation,” as Gwen Carrington praised T. Foster & Co.’s “open-door attitude.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
