New owners intend to make Bixler’s its own wholesale brand.

Following the acquisition of the Pennsylvania-based Bixler’s jewelry store, Lehigh Valley Live explores what the new owners have in store for the business that’s considered to be America’s oldest jeweler. The article says that Perry Sporn, a jeweler who runs dozens of stores and has a Vermont manufacturing division, closed on the transaction in April. He’s planning to install a museum “that will display the many artifacts Bixler’s family has collected from more than two centuries of being in business,” and eventually sell custom jewelry under Bixler’s name as a wholesale brand.

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.
