Last Laugh: Emily Spath Clark




[h3]BIG SALE[/h3]
A WOMAN was taking her time browsing through everything at a jewelry store sales event, and said to the sales associate, “My husband is going to be very angry I stopped at a jewelry store.”

“I’m sure he’ll understand when you tell him about all the beautiful things at bargain prices you found,” the sales associate replied.

“Normally, yes,” she said. “But he just broke his leg, and he’s waiting for me to take him to the hospital to have it set.”

Second-generation jeweler Emily Spath Clark was literally born into the jewelry business. After she graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in business marketing she was offered the role of vice president of operations at the family-owned and operated Spath Jewelers of Bartow and Valrico, FL. Emily and her family follow the mottos “With God all things are possible,” and “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” A sense of humor helps in retail, too. “You see so many different personalities,” she says. “When you have a good attitude, it comes across to others and it radiates back to you.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
