Wilkerson Jewelers, located in downtown Stuttgart, is owned and operated by Bobby Wilkerson who is a second-generation jeweler and grew up in the business. His father had a small watch repair and jewelry shop in Moulton, Alabama. In 1972, Bobby Wilkerson purchased Wynn and changed the name to Wilkerson Jewelers.
