Pearce Jewelers, West Lebanon, NH

Kate and Fred Pearce, owners of Pearce Jewelers, have been a design team since their student days in the mid-’60s. After college, the couple formed Peace Design, handcrafting fine jewelry to wholesale to stores nationwide. (They still produce their wedding band line for galleries). The couple opened their first retail location in 1986. Kate Pearce says she’s having “too much fun” to retire from retail yet, but when she does she’ll continue to do appraisal work.

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

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. 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.”
