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.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
