Alvin Goldfarb was 84.

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.

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.”
