WHY IT'S TRUE 
How many times have you bought a book with a colorful cover and a snappy title, only to find it to be a dull read? Or a plain-Jane book so exciting you can't put it down? How many times have you erroneously prejudged a customer wearing a T-shirt, shorts and flip-flops who reaches into his pocket and pulls out a wad of cash to pay for an expensive diamond ring? Or the guy decked out in a suit who can't even qualify for credit? 
 
PLAN OF ACTION 
The Declaration of Independence states: “all men are created equal.” Extend that to your store and resist the tendency to prejudge customers. Approach the next customer who appears to look out of character and show him your most expensive piece. Upon closing a sale, judge not that the customer has spent enough, but go for the add-on sale. And don't be surprised when he buys. Quit prejudging people and watch your sales soar.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
