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.” You may like From Sexy Green to Other Vibrant Hues, These Are the Newest Colored Gemstone Designs Pandora Temporarily Closes 25% of Stores Due to COVID-19 Artistry’s Graymoor Lane Featured on The Bachelorette Promoted Headlines Digital Warrior: A Conversation with GemFind’s Alex Fetanat GemFind A Sales Meeting Platform for The 21st Century The Plumb Club With Average Retails of $250, This Is One Brand You Won’t Want to Miss!
