The Seattle Times reports that Alvin Goldfarb, who founded a boutique jewelry store in Bellevue, WA, has died at age 84. Goldfarb started Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler in Bellevue’s downtown area in 1980 and grew it into a thriving operation. He retired about 10 years ago, and his son, Steven Goldfarb, now runs the business. (Steven Goldfarb has often been quoted in the pages of INSTORE on topics ranging from hot-selling items to customer service, and the business was honored as one of our “Cool Stores” in 2009.) The elder Goldfarb passed away Sept. 4 in Seattle, according to the Times. Among his community service activities, Goldfarb had been president of the Pacific Northwest Jewelers Association.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
