When a deep discount becomes a grand theft.

Jessy Bonefant, a 25-year-old cashier at a J.C. Penney store in Orlando, FL, has been charged with fraud and grand theft after allegedly giving himself a 99.45 percent discount on $21,832.58 worth of jewelry he ordered from the store, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The article says that Bonefant paid just $120 for the 15-piece order, allegedly making the fraudulent transaction using someone else’s account on a J.C. Penney register. The retailer’s IT department then flagged the discount as “excessively high,” which prompted a loss-prevention review. The article reports that Bonefant subsequently confessed to police.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. 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.”
