He couldn’t stay away.

Dick Anderson decided a while back that he was done with the retail jewelry business.

And then he decided he wasn’t.

Anderson recently reopened his store, Anderson’s Jewelry, in Greeneville, TN, the Greeneville Sun reports.

He had left the business in 2015. A few months later, he wanted back in.

He told the newspaper: “I actually missed it. It’s all I had ever done.”

Anderson’s father had started the store in 1965.

The new incarnation of the store is at a different location in town. And there’s another twist, as well. 

Anderson is sharing space with Tom Paxton, who operates The Jewelry Bench, a business specializing in repair work.

Paxton had already been working from the East Gate Shopping Center location for a few years.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
