TO STAY SHARP and motivated, it’s important to take some time off work every now and then. A nice vacation can be just the thing to re-energize a weary jeweler.

Gene the Jeweler, a fictional character created by marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot, understands this. Or so he says.

Gene takes his team to Las Vegas once a year for the trade shows. That counts a vacation, doesn’t it?

Or perhaps you define a vacation as time spent away from your team. If that’s the case, the Gene takes one every single day when he leaves work.

Or maybe Gene just doesn’t get it.

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.”
