Owners didn’t see business getting any better after a “quirky year in retailing.”

Dorfman Jewelers, owned by two brothers whose family has ran a jewelry store in Boston since the Great Depression, is closing after what one of the brothers calls a “quirky year in retailing,” the Boston Globe reports. Jonathan Dorfman pointed to a number of factors that prompted the brothers’ decision to close, including changing consumer sentiment and uncertainty in China. “The luxury business is going through a difficult time,” he told the Globe. “I didn’t see it getting better for several years. We figured it made sense to monetize the inventory and say goodbye.”

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.”
