IN THIS EPISODE of the satirical Gene the Jeweler series created by Jimmy DeGroot, Gene deals with an employee who is about six-and-a-half hours late for work.

As an understanding and empathetic boss, Gene listens attentively to the staff member’s explanation.

As it turns out, the tale was probably best left untold. This employee is extremely dedicated to his job — either that or he has a very active imagination.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
