Caplan’s Jewelry Store in Weston, WV, has been an important part of the community for 89 years, and its owners recently talked about their keys to success.

Dave and Terry Glover have owned the store since 1970, the Exponent Telegram reports. The business was opened in 1927 by Terry Glover’s great-uncle.

“We wait on third and fourth generations of customers,” Dave Glover said. “We don’t have customers; we have friends.”

The shop is the last remaining jewelry store in Weston, and with this status has come business growth.

Maintaining a diverse product mix, even beyond jewelry, has also been important for Caplan’s.
“We’ve been carrying Vera Bradley for 10 years — purses, accessories, scarves, travel luggage, lotion and perfumes,” Terry Glover said. Customers often come in for one item and end up buying a couple of things.

And the store’s family tradition is continuing. The Glovers’ daughter, Melissa Fox, has been working at Caplan’s for two decades.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
