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.

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
