It took them 90 seconds to smash up the joint and make their getaway.

Three thieves stole an undetermined amount of merchandise from Prime Jewelers inside a Missouri mall, a heist that police say was “well-planned,” KMOV.com reports. According to the article, two of the three men were wearing ski masks and used crowbars to smash jewelry cases. When a store employee tried to stop them, one of the robbers sprayed him with mace. Another employee and a security guard – whose radio was stolen so he couldn’t call for help – were also sprayed. The incident lasted about 90 seconds. “[The robbers] knew they had to go in the closest entrance and exit quickly, they had a vehicle outside ready to pick them up.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
