True Tales: Definitely Not a $55 Ring

Published

on

A man walked in and wanted to buy a diamond bracelet. I showed him many — stating the prices as “twenty-five hundred, thirty-three hundred, and this one is fifty-five.? He said ?I’ll take that one.? He gave me his charge card and I rang in $5,500 plus tax. The card was declined. I asked him if maybe it was declined because he only had a $5,000 limit? He said: “Five thousand” I thought you said fifty-five!? I answered “Yes, I probably did, but I meant fifty-five hundred!” He said, “I guess I haven’t been in a jewelry store for a long time.” We both laughed, and he left shaking his head.

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.”
