Do Us All a Favor and Quit

There is a store across town where the owner insults people and runs them off on a daily basis. There is not one week that goes by that we don’t have someone tell us a bad story about him. Why are you still in the business if you don’t care about helping people and making them happy? Do us all a favor and close your store. Jewelers like this give the rest of us an undeserved stigma. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX


GOOD FOR THE GOOSE

Manufacturers must be doing better than retailers to be able to dictate how much you have to spend to remain a customer. Love to see a retailer do this with one of their customers. — Scott Kelly, Jems Jewels & Gold, North Wales, PA

YOU’RE NO DAISY

Why are millennials constantly trying to reinvent the wheel? This seems to be the issue with them and jewelry; everything they want has to be “different” yet exactly the same as everyone else has! OMG, so dull, yet they think they’re so unique … LOL. — Idar Bergseth, Idar, Victoria, British Columbia

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
