The burglar entered with a gun, but the store owner shot first.

The owner of Leilani’s Jewelers in Torrance, CA, fatally shot a man that police said was trying to rob the store, the Daily Breeze reports. The article says that the burglar entered the store with a gun, but the store owner opened fire and killed the man. At the time of the shooting, they were the only two people in the store, and it was not immediately known if surveillance cameras were recording. Though police didn’t identify the owner, the article says that 59-year-old Tad Tanino has run the business for more than 30 years.

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.”
