Farts in the jewelry store

A young woman came in to apply for a job. While filling out the application, she farted, looked at my sister and said, “Was that you?” — Eileen E., Decatur, IN


 

We have an initiation rite for new employees. We pretend to have dropped a diamond and in a panicked voice tell them to rush down to the bench and get the “diamond magnet” before any customers come in. They return when they realize they don’t really know where it is (or what it is). The laughter is usually uncontrollable, and they have become one of the gang. — Dennis P., Johnstown, PA

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
