You Won’t Believe What This Jeweler Did to Make His Community Love Him

Siegel’s Jewelry in Paso Robles, CA, walked the Christmas walk last year. On Christmas Eve, they put a tree outside their front door with approximately 50 gifts worth $10-$50 each for anyone in need of a present but who couldn’t afford one. “On the following Monday, all the gifts were gone and a note under our door said how nice it was that people like you are still around,” said owner Ken Siegel. Such were the feelings of goodwill generated by the gesture that Siegel’s decided to up their generosity: “This year we will be doing our gift tree each night for seven nights before Christmas,” Siegel said.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
