I shared with some folks 2 weeks ago about a jeweler here in the
Atlanta area that attended our Vegas seminar and had a devastating
burglary two weeks later. This one man store came to my seminar and
started using the newest book, 4.0 and was amazed how he was getting
all of these prices.
Two weeks ago someone stole a back hoe and drove it into his front
store front and tried to lift and take the safe during the night. It
didn't work. Rather than backing out the way he came in, he took a
left and then made a big hole through the side wall, out to the
parking lot. He demolished everything, showcases, tables, benches and
the safe, although now open, is useless.
He's at his ropes end. The landlord has given his the availability
of renting the vacant store next door and they will fix the old
space. But he has no insurance at all. I'm personally going to do an
ad campaign to his customer list and let his customers know he's
still in business and wants to continue.
He's in need. His store was wiped out. One person has offered 2 old
showcases and one bench. He still has jewelers tool, benches, etc
but needs showroom stuff and a new safe.
I have given him the name of a liquidator to buy his jewelry, about
$125,000 at cost and am helping him on the road of just doing custom
and repair and gave out two names of folks who have done well with
that to give him hope.
But if you have any stuff you can donate, please contact him. He's a
very nice man with a family.
Thanks for your help, his name and contact info:
