(PRESS RELEASE) In response to the fast-breaking developments related to the COVID-19 coronavirus in New York City, MJSA has decided to postpone its Expo, which had been scheduled to run March 15-17 at the Javits Center.

“We place the highest importance on the health and well-being of our exhibitors, attendees, and staff,” said MJSA President/CEO David W. Cochran. “Given Governor Cuomo’s decision to declare a state of emergency for New York State, along with the current uncertainty about the virus’s progression in New York City, we’ve decided to postpone the show until the threat passes and we can be more certain that MJSA Expo can be run both safely and successfully.

“We’ve already heard from many Expo exhibitors who agree that this move is necessary,” he continued. “We are currently working with the management of JA New York and the Javits Center to identify new show dates for later this year, and we’ll coordinate with our exhibitors to ensure the shift can proceed as smoothly as possible.”

MJSA would like to thank everyone for their support and new dates will be announced soon.

MJSA Expo is the longest-running trade show dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design, and it annually features the leading suppliers of related tools, equipment, supplies, and services. For continuing updates, go to MJSAExpo.org.

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.”
