“A lack of planning on your part does not create an emergency on mine.”

To the young couple who came in for very specific wedding bands on a Saturday. I figured everything up and told them I could have them Monday afternoon. They said that wouldn’t work as the ceremony was Sunday, less than 24 hours away! My manners kept me from admonishing them.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
