Simcha Minkowitz, owner of Amor Fine Jewelry in Brooklyn, sees big-box stores doing brisk business in her region, and she’s having trouble understanding why she has to remain closed.

She recently posted a video to social media pleading the case for small businesses to be allowed to reopen, and it’s since gone viral, CBS New York reports.

She paused her business about eight weeks ago when Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered restrictions to slow the spread of  COVID-19. She believes she could reopen her small store safely.

“I think I’d be able to sanitize my space better than a large Target, let’s say, or a large Costco,” CBS New York quoted her saying.

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.”
