[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]

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
