Icebox Diamonds & Watches in Atlanta was burglarized after masked gunmen tied up a jeweler and his wife in their home, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Cobb County police stated that on Friday, the culprits forced the couple into their home and took the store keys. The couple were not injured.

(The Journal-Constitution described one of the victims as the owner. Other news sources, including WXIA-TV, described him as the manager.)

Two men broke into the Buckhead store at about 11:30 p.m. and spent about two hours there, authorities said. They took jewelry and watches from safes.

The stolen goods were reportedly worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in total. Cash and jewelry were also stolen from the jeweler’s home, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Icebox Diamonds & Watches is known for its celebrity clientele, the newspaper notes.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
