2 glasses of wine

A favorite client brought his fiancée in to have her choose her engagement rings. Yes, rings! She chose three. He said, “We want to be different and I want to see some bling on her hand.” He was a bit overexcited and she was a bit overwhelmed, so I sent him up the street to the wine store for a bottle of champagne to celebrate. It gave her a good 20 minutes to decide what she liked and try things on without pressure. When he returned with two very nice bottles of champagne, she was feeling more at ease. — Theresa Peregoy, Classic Facets, Edgewater, CO

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.”
