She didn’t need jewelry; she needed diapers.

“After 35 years of hearing various excuses and stories when customers return or pawn, a month or so ago, a customer came in to pawn her newly purchased anniversary gift. She was all apologetic because she needed the money for meds. Her total hysterectomy failed, and she just found out she was pregnant. I was speechless.” — Trisha Corleto, Lowell Jewelry and Loan, Lowell, MA



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
