It’s another legal trouble for the 43-year-old retailer.

Hofmeister Jewelers is being sued by Wells Fargo after the Indianapolis retailer allegedly defaulted on a $2.3 million mortgage on one of its stores, the Indianapolis Business Journal reports. Hofmeister, according to the lawsuit referenced in the article, missed a monthly mortgage payment of $21,004 that was due on March 1 before missing further payments on April 1 and May 1. The 43-year-old retailer is also still trying to pay off debt from the Chapter 11 bankruptcy it filed in 2011.

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.”
