Animals were on display at Borsheims as part of a fundraiser for Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium.

Nearly a dozen animal ambassadors from Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium and their handlers interacted with Borsheims customers and zoo supporters. Guests could learn about and touch snakes, exotic birds, lizards, a tortoise and an opossum while enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres. They were also able to shop Borsheims wide selection of jewelry, watches, and fine gifts, including several animal-themed jewelry pieces.

A portion of all sales of Borsheims exclusive Kalahari Dream Diamond collection, Signature Diamond collection and lab-grown diamond collection from Aug. 3 were donated to the zoo for the Asian Highlands exhibit.

Borsheims Fine Jewelry and Gifts is one of the nation’s largest independent jewelry stores and a member of the Berkshire Hathaway family.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
