Last Laugh: Mallory Murphy

Published

In this month’s joke, a shoplifter gets caught in the act of stealing an expensive watch.

[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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
