True Tales: This Thief’s A Real Rodent



One morning before Christmas, one of our sales associates mentioned that a strand of black pearls was missing. This was a strand that was usually displayed in our window showcase and fell in the price range that did not have to be secured in our vault at night. With the volume of sales that we had experienced during the holiday season, we thought they may have been sold. The bust was redisplayed and nothing more was thought of it.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
