WHY IT’S TRUE

When looking for a new car, I went to a dealership with a great reputation. But the salesman didn’t seem to know much about the product. I left and bought a car from a real expert. Your store’s image and reputation encourage prospects who are looking for a piece of jewelry to drop by. The perception is: This is a great store with diamond and jewelry experts. An expert does not immediately drop the four Cs or bore with technical knowledge. 

PLAN OF ACTION
Greet the customer in your normal friendly manner. Ask the customer questions that encourage her to discuss the reason for being in your store. First position yourself as the expert in the area of her greatest defined need. Then position your store and its benefits to support your expertise and the needs, wants and passions of your customer.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
