I’ll Be Back to Pick It Up … As Soon as I Get Out of Prison

But long pickup times were no match for father-in-law’s memory.




I’ll Be Back to Pick It Up … As Soon as I Get Out of Prison

A man dropped off a pocketwatch with my father-in-law for repairs. He came back 25 years later to pick it up. Another time, a guy dropped off a bag of watches for batteries. He came back five years later after he got out of prison. The batteries were all dead and we had a hard time getting him to pay for new cells, but he eventually did. — Contributed anonymously to the 2022 Big Survey



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
