GENERAL MANAGER AND gemologist Robin Lies has been in the jewelry business for 40 years. With three partners, including third-generation goldsmith Nathan Regan, Lies purchased Burnell’s Fine Jewelry and Design in Wichita, KS, when store owner Jerry Burnell retired six years ago. The store specializes in custom design and colored gemstones. “Mr. Burnell pops in and sends us little notes to tell us how proud he is,” she says.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
