INSTORE Dec Get Inspired

When Ronnie Adolf, second-generation owner of Adolf Jewelers in Richmond, VA, decided to retire after 57 years, his daughter Robin Salzberg and longtime Adolf associate Daniel Wright decided to continue the Adolf legacy, with a twist. They opened Adolf 2.0 in 2018 and called it Lustre by Adolf. “At the original Adolf’s, the staff wore tuxedos for the Christmas Eve party,” Daniel says. “But here at Lustre, we’re a bit more relaxed. We’re a mixed religion store, and we decided we’re going to have a little fun.” In off hours, Daniel, a pilot, says flying is the most relaxing thing he can do. Robin loves to travel; her favorite destination is Aruba.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
