I NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD what the whole Mark McGwire commotion was all about. In my eyes, a thing of beauty is a thing of a beauty whether it’s a small white ball flying into the high seats of Busch Stadium or a dazzling blue gem that once may have been a rather dull colorless silicate. I mean, seriously, if a little performance enhancement doesn’t bother the Geiger counter, why should it bother your customers? And don’t try to tell me rubies, sapphires, diamonds and most of those other big hitters aren’t above a little nip and tuck here, a little juice or heat to get them really looking sharp. I like to think it’s this kind of pragmatism that has made me a star in Texas.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
