True Tales: One Last Christmas Gift

Published

on

About eight years ago in March, one of my customers came into my store with the physical assistance of a friend. I had known for some time Ricky had been fighting a brain tumor and that his outlook wasn’t good. Ricky asked to see our selection of gold crosses. He picked out a plain small cross with gold chain and asked that I order three of them and engrave “Love Ricky, Christmas 1996” on each. He told us to gift-wrap them in Christmas paper and hold them in the store. Ricky said, “If I’m still alive at Christmas, I’ll pick them up. If not, please deliver these to my wife on Christmas Eve.” One was for his wife and the others for his teenage daughters. Unfortunately, Ricky didn’t make it to Christmas, and I delivered the crosses when promised. I cannot begin to describe the emotion his wife and daughters had when they found out that Ricky had thought so far ahead that he gave them one final Christmas present. It was the highlight of their Christmas, as it was for every member of my staff. We have chosen a profession that can bring a lot of joy. That’s what really matters.

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.”
