Podcast Highlight: Craig Husar Discusses the ‘Very, Very Difficult’ Process of Building His New Store

Wisconsin jeweler intended his story to be inspirational, but has to admit that it was so hard he almost gave up at one point.




ONE OF THE REASONS noted jeweler Craig Husar came onto INSTORE’s podcast, The Barb Wire, was to offer moral support to jewelers considering risky moves. He was thinking of risky moves like the one he made while building his monumental new store, Craig Husar Fine Diamonds & Jewelry Designs in Brookfield, WI, which opened this January.

But when sharing his story, Husar chuckles at the notion of inspiring other jewelers, admitting that building his store was a very, very difficult process and one he almost gave up on himself. See how Husar describes the process in this short excerpt from the latest episode of “The Barb Wire”.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
