Beware Swedish Customers Bearing Goodie Bags

Yes, we call it high season in America, but that’s not what we mean.

We had a foreign client who formerly owned a sandwich shop in Sweden. For the holidays, he would make these fabulous open-faced bite-sized sandwiches for us the way Americans traditionally make and share cookies. At Christmas, he handed me a huge tray and a ziplock bag. In his thick Swedish accent, he said, “I brought you sandwiches and a couple of doobies!” I had never smoked a joint, nor was it recreationally legal yet in Colorado at the time, and my husband was a government contractor. I walked in the shop with all of the “goodies” and my jewelers just about died laughing. We ate the sandwiches and “donated” the offending doobies to a friend who had his medical marijuana card. — Jennifer Farnes, Revolution Jewelry Works, Colorado Springs, CO

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
