Last Laugh: Chuck Kuba

A woman and her husband are having dinner at an expensive restaurant when she informs him she hired a private detective and she knows all about his affair. Furthermore, she wants a divorce. The guy casually agrees and says they’ll have to sell off everything to split assets and that includes her new, 5-carat diamond solitaire ring. You could hear a pin drop. Suddenly, she blurts out, “Isn’t that Bill over there? And who’s that woman he’s with? That’s not his wife.” Her husband replies, “No, that’s Bill’s mistress.” The wife thinks a minute and says, “Well, she’s not nearly as pretty as ours!”

“I am grateful to find somebody who appreciates my sense of humor. Thanks INSTORE!” says Chuck Kuba, owner of Iowa Diamond in Des Moines. Kuba has a bachelor of arts degree in nonprofit management (he’s aware of the irony) and a family history in the jewelry business. In 2007, Inc. Magazine chose Iowa Diamond for the Inc. 5,000 as one of the fastest-growing independent companies in the U.S. But Kuba finds time to relax, too. He plays bass in a number of ensembles, including the Iowa Diamondtaires, the store’s in-house band.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
