Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store.

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.”
