Last Laugh: Mallory Murphy

[h5]ABOUT OUR JOKER [/h5]

Mallory Murphy, 21, is the fourth generation of Murphy Jewelers and the daughter of Patrick and Kim Murphy. After constantly hearing her father tell “cheesy” jokes to friends at jewelry trade shows, she knew she had to do something to restore her family’s reputation, she says. “We started to become infamously known for our bad jokes,” says Mallory. “‘The Last Laugh’ is my way to clear the Murphy name, while also providing my dad with new material!” Murphy Jewelers was founded in 1913 when Frank J. Murphy opened a store in downtown Pottsville, PA, and traveled door-to-door in a horse and buggy repairing schoolhouse clocks. Today, almost 100 years later, they’ve grown to become one of Pennsylvania’s foremost jewelry retailers, with three locations in Pottsville, Hamburg, and a newly opened store at the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley in Lehigh Valley, PA.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
