[h5]THUMBNAIL – CLICK TO ENLARGE GRAPHIC [/h5]

[dropcap cap=Several years ago,] I remember hearing a tale of a young lady who brought all of her jewelry to a jeweler and wanted it all put together into one piece. The jeweler told her she had enough gold, gemstones and diamonds to make many pieces. She insisted she only wanted one. She insisted he put them all together without taking out any of the stone and melt them all together, and she wanted to watch. He explained what would happen to the colored stones and diamonds, but she insisted. When he was finished with the blob, she had a huge smile on her face and wanted it boxed. Her cheating ex wanted back all the jewelry he’d given her, and she was giving it back. [/dropcap]

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.”
