True Tales: The Urn Return

Published

on

I grew up in the family jewelry business.
When my father passed away, I got a small container of his ashes, which I put in the store’s safe. One day an old customer of ours came in and looked at some stone rings. He asked how much the ring was and I told him. He said, “If your father was here, he’d give me a better price.” I went to the safe and got out the container of his ashes and told the customer, “Dad’s in this container, and if you can get him to lower the price, I’ll give it to you.” He laughed so hard that tears came down his face and said, “I’ll take it, I’ll take it.”

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.”
