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.

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.”
