Gene the Jeweler Calls This His ‘Best Trade Ever’ … But That’s Wishful Thinking

After yet another inventive deal, our favorite jeweler is ready to “kick out the jams”.




In this episode of the satirical Gene the Jeweler series, Gene talks about the the deal he struck with another local business.

They’re supposed to promote each other, and Gene considers this to be his “best trade ever.”

Working with other local businesses can, of course, be great. But in this case there’s a problem: severe lack of synergy.



Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
