Video: Maximize on the Opportunities That 2020 Brought the Jewelry Industry Share Tweet Published 2 years ago on April 22, 2019 By INSTORE Staff Burglars cut through the roof of a jewelry store in Laguna Niguel, CA, and took “all items in the store, including repair pieces,” the Jewelers’ Security Alliance reports. KCAL-TV identfied the business as Nuggets and Carats Jewelry Store. According to JSA, the burglars “cut through the roof, used a rope to lower themselves in, and cut into the safe.” They also “removed another safe from the store, which was dragged out a back door into a parking lot.” The crime took place on the evening of March 23. JSA states that it has seen a nationwide uptick in the number of reports of burglaries involving rooftop entry or cutting through sidewalls, with some involving cutting alarm wires.

It’s got a plate on the outside that needed to be cut with some type of a laser or saw, and they had to cut away at the concrete, and then another plate they had to go through.” Find out more at KCAL-TV Related Topics: burglarycrimeLatest News Topnews video click to Comment(Comment) Up Next News Report Reveals Sordid Details of Alleged Sexual Harassment At Signet Don't Miss 100 US Jewelry Retailers Closed in the First Quarter INSTORE Staff Over the years, INSTORE has won 80 international journalism awards for its publication and website.

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.” You may like IGI to Certify Rare Pink Diamonds from Australia’s Argyle Mine Bergio Acquires Online Jewelry Retailer Aphrodite’s Platinum Guild International USA Relaunches E-Learning and Resource Website Promoted Headlines Digital Warrior: A Conversation with GemFind’s Alex Fetanat GemFind A Sales Meeting Platform for The 21st Century The Plumb Club With Average Retails of $250, This Is One Brand You Won’t Want to Miss!
