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

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.”
