Wisconsin Jewelers Run “Family Business with Soul”

Andy and Jenn Koehn are the modern-day Koehn & Koehn of their business, which was founded by Andy’s grandfather sometime in the 1930s. “We aren’t exactly sure when we were founded,” Andy says. “The Koehns aren’t so into numbers. Ha!” Jenn is responsible for back of the house, and Andy is up front working in sales, training and as a greeter. They call their enterprise a “family business with soul” and infuse it with all the authenticity, personality and humor at their disposal.



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
