A dose of watchdog journalism helped the business change its mind.

A woman who had repeated problems with a gold chain she bought from Schubach Jewelers in Utah was denied a replacement even though her warranty entitled her to one, KUTV reports. The article says that she had the chain repaired more than six times, which qualified her for a replacement under the terms of her warranty. But when she requested a new chain, the store told her that it would cost more because the price of gold had increased.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
