True Tales: The Old Pest

Published

on

“One time a funny old man came into our store. He didn’t know where he was and he just wanted to rest. He sat on a chair in our showroom. Finally, after about an hour, I was tired of talking to him and had work to do. So I asked him where he was going and where he lived. He didn’t know! After much probing, I finally got a phone number out of him. He said it was his friend’s number and, if I asked, his friend would come and pick him up. I called and another very old man answered the phone. When I told him I had his friend in my shop and that he needed to be picked up, the old man on the other end of the line said: ‘Oh, you mean you have Wilbur there?’ Figuring this was the end of the saga, I said with relief: ‘Yes, I think so.’ Then the man answered: ‘I’m not picking Wilbur up, he’s a nuisance!‘ and hung up on me!

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.”
