We once had a gentleman in our store who
was visiting from Texas. He was saying to us (and
other customers in the store) how things were so
much grander in Texas. He claimed that back home
if he drove his car at 9.00 in the morning, it took
him almost to 1.00 in the afternoon before he got to
the end of his expansive property. Another gentlemen
who was here at the time looked at him and
said. “Well my property is about 100 yards in either
direction and you know what? I had a car like that
once!” – Alex Weil, Martin’s Jewelry, Manhattan

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
