I HAD a great assistant manager who also happened to be very handy doing repairs around the store. One time, he was working on an electrical problem in the island in the front of the store. Somehow, some of the wires got crossed and blew him back onto the floor in a pile of debris in the center of the island semi-conscious. Another employee, a part-time ambulance attendant, asked, “Should I give him mouth-to-mouth?” And the chorus replied, “No, let him lie!” This is the stuff of legends! — Jon Walp, Long Jewelers, Virginia Beach, VA

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
