As an ongoing best practice to help protect your business, Jewelers Mutual strongly encourages all jewelers to secure merchandise within a safe or vault. Jewelers should also review our do’s and don’ts during a jewelry store robbery. Below are a few of the don’ts:

  • Don’t call police, press a hold-up alarm, or panic button
  • Don’t make eye contact with or threaten the robbers in anyway
  • Don’t pursue the robbers after they leave

Along with advising jewelers of what can be done to prevent crime, Jewelers Mutual will continue to monitor developing criminal situations and deploy additional targeted loss prevention services to protect commercial lines policyholders and the jewelry industry when possible.

“Jewelers Mutual is committed as a proactive business partner in the protection of jewelry and providing a safe environment to our customers,” said Larry Spicer, vice president of Loss Prevention and Risk Management Services.

Policyholders are also encouraged to contact their agent with any questions regarding additional security measures they can leverage to protect their property.

He talked to Rick Hayes, Wilkerson president, and took his time before making a final decision. He’d heard Wilkerson knew their way around a going out of business sale. But, he says, “he didn’t realize how good it was going to be.” Sales goals were “ambitious,” but even Matthews was pleasantly surprised. “It looks like we’re going to double that.”
