It Started with a Watering Can

WHEN I WAS newly opened, I had a customer come in with an expensive watering can she used in her garden. She asked if we could put some solder on a part that leaked. I mentioned that we don’t work on watering cans, and she asked why not. I didn’t have an explanation, so we did it. Since then, we have put rhinestones on belts and shoes and even put a rhinestone in a bra/bikini top. (They never came and picked up the bra.) — Bill Brundage, Bill Brundage Jewelers, Louisville, KY

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
