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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
