This Car Dealer Got Revenge With a Low-Ball Offer on a Diamond

I received a written offer from a used-car salesman looking to buy a diamond and bridal/wedding set: he wanted an additional 15 percent off my sales quote; a larger diamond with a higher color, clarity and cut grade; lifetime discounts on any and all future repairs or purchases; and additional discounts. And, if I agreed to his terms (and signed on his dotted line), he would give me 50 percent payment! Wowza! Car sales, huh.

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.”
