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.

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.”
