A law-enforcement officer would come in often in uniform, but one Saturday, he and his wife came in wearing jeans and t-shirts. Going to write up the repair envelope, my clerk said, “I know I know you, but I can’t place you.” He kindly replied, “Bill, the motorcycle officer.” To all of our amusement, my clerk replied without even thinking: “Oh, I didn’t recognize you with your clothes on!” – Frank Cafaro, Frank Cafaro Downtown Jewelers, Miami,FL

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
