“Everybody gets to a point where it’s time,” owner says.

After spending the last six years in downtown Fayetteville, NC, Michael Rayburn has put his Twisted Jeweler store up for sale in order to move his business to Washington, D.C, the Fayetteville Observer reports. Speaking with the news outlet, he cites the increased opportunities the D.C. area affords for his family’s various pursuits, saying that he probably won’t open another physical location and instead just sell online and at jewelry shows. “We enjoy Fayetteville. We really do. It’s been great to us. But everybody gets to a point where it’s time,” he says.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
