America's Coolest Stores

Hyde Park Jewelers-Judges Comments



Bob Taczala: The exterior subtly nods to Frank Lloyd Wright and the Biltmore Hotel. The architect did a great job of continuing the vocabulary of previous design around the corner.

Adam Graham: The interior of the store is warm and inviting – great chandelier!

Sarah Read: I FEEL cool just looking at this store. From the chandelier to the "Frank Lloyd Wright feel, they have put together a store that I would want to shop in and be proud to tell my friends about: "Yeah, I shop there."

Todd Reed:
The openness of this store and simple curves balanced with the array of complex textures is cool.

Katy Briggs: Their multi-media "Countdown" grand opening campaign was well thought out and beautifully executed – exactly what was needed to build anticipation for the arrival.

Michael M. Clarke: The socially responsible and generous profile of the owners adds to the mystique and allure of Hyde Park and invites participation.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
