(Press Release) ATTLEBORO FALLS, MA – Jewelry manufacturer Marathon Company, based in Attleboro, MA, has announced announce the acquisition of the LeStage Manufacturing Company, based in Attleboro Falls, MA.

Marathon is a family-owned business which has been manufacturing jewelry in the U.S. since 1897. LeStage, most recently known for its Cape Cod Jewelry and the LeStage Convertible Collection of bracelets and interchangeable clasps, is a family-owned domestic manufacturing business that began in 1863. Marathon will continue manufacturing LeStage products in the U.S.

"My brother Richard and I are delighted to entrust our legacy to Marathon,” says Garner LeStage, president of LeStage. “We feel as if we are handing the reins to our own progeny rather than selling the company.”

"We’re looking forward to carrying on the fine tradition of supplying quality products made in the U.S.A. that has been associated with the Cape Cod Jewelry and LeStage Convertible Collections,” says Roger Forman, president of the Marathon Company. “As a family-owned and -operated business ourselves, we understand the responsibility that comes with building on the LeStage name, and we are proud to have the opportunity to do so.”

Marathon will be exhibiting at all major trade shows including RJO, IJO, CBG, JANY, JIS, SJTA and JCK Las Vegas.

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.”
