Barnhardt Jewelers, Spencer, NC

Elysia Demers, whose former career was in marketing for the motorcycle industry, is sales and marketing manager for Barnhardt Jewelers in Spencer, NC, just down the road from the county seat of Salisbury. She was attracted to Barnhardt because it’s a family business. “I’m not a corporate kind of person. I like to come in and give my ideas,” she says. “We have a really good team and we’re always there for each other.” She thrives on juggling responsibilities, despite a stress-induced proclivity for sleepwalking documented in INSTORE’s December issue.

Over the years, INSTORE has won 80 international journalism awards for its publication and website. Contact INSTORE's editors at [email protected].

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
