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. Being a small business, it takes a few people here and there and you could have some adverse effects.” He does note, however, that the ad has sparked modest criticism to date.

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.”
