The business owner knew he was taking a risk.

BVW Jewelers in Reno, NV, has broken advertising tradition with a new commercial that shows two women getting engaged, the Associated Press reports. The commercial has been playing at movie theaters and on local TV stations, mostly during broadcasts of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the report adds. “If anything, it was a risk on me being a small business in Nevada,” BVW owner Britten Wolf told the AP. “I love our state but you don’t know how that’s going to hit people here.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
