(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — As a result of suspicious activity detected earlier this month within a state in the Midwest, Jewelers Mutual arranged additional surveillance for commercial lines policyholders in the immediate area.

This is the second time in in the past four months Jewelers Mutual has provided additional surveillance to policyholders in ongoing efforts to keep members safe and secure. In October 2019, extra security surveillance was provided to policyholders in the state of California during widespread power outages.

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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
