VALUE SHOPPER 
 
?ON CHRISTMAS EVE, an elderly gentleman came into the store looking for a sapphire eternity band. We didn’t have one in stock and explained to him that an eternity band is generally custom-made as resizing is not an option after presentation as a gift. He said he would send his wife in after Christmas to order the ring. The wife showed up in mid-January for estimates on a white gold eternity ring with sapphires. We priced it out with two different grades of sapphires and she went home to ‘talk to the boss’. When she came back after a couple of weeks to have some other jewelry work done, we asked her what her husband had decided was on the sapphire band. Her response was: ?He said if I was younger he would go for it, but at my age he doesn’t think we’ll really get our money’s worth out of it.’ She settled for garnets.?

?I HAD A WOMAN come into the store looking for a ruby ring. After 45 minutes, she finally had focused on one ring for $1,500. We talked a little more and she told me that she would have to go home and pray on it. If God wanted her to have the ring, she would come back the next day. Now, I’m a fairly religious guy and have a great amount of respect for God. But, I really don’t think God cares one way or the other whether this woman buys this ring. So I figured if she could use God as a sales obstacle, I could use God as a closing tool. I simply said, ?Ma’am, why do you think you’re here with me today? God already brought us together so that you could purchase this ring!’ Five minutes later, she walked out of the store with the ring on her finger! The Lord works in mysterious ways!

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.”
