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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
