True Tales: The Woman With No Voice

Published

?Our decor and presentation leads some people to assume our store is more of a museum than a retail jewelry store. Many times people come in and whisper amongst themselves about various pieces. When I saw them doing that, I used to stand up and announce in a loud, friendly voice, ?Hey, this isn’t a library or museum, so there is no need to whisper, and I’ll be glad to show you any of our items?. One morning, these two ladies walk in and go to the wall case farthest from my desk and start to whisper to one another. So I stand up and make my announcement about it not being a library or museum and that there was no need to whisper. At this point, the one lady raises an artificial larynx to her throat and says, in an electronic-enhanced voice, ?I’m sorry, I don’t have a voice?! I will never use that line ever again when people whisper in the store.

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.”
