Do You Or Don’t You … Provide Gift Receipts?The holder can make an exchange or get store credit, but no refunds of any amount. The holder isn’t my customer yet. I will give the refund only to the person who paid. — Don Delano; JL Jewelers, Tampa, FL

Only when asked. We offer in-store credit only on returns. — Sheralyn Bartels; Don’s Jewelry, Clinton, IA

Our POS offers the option, but very seldom do we offer it to the guest unless it is a gift to a non-family member. — Tom Duma; Thom Duma Fine Jewelers, Warren, OH

We offer them on request, but they are not necessary for an exchange. — Lisa Baca; Princess Bride Diamonds, Huntington Beach, CA

We ask the purchaser if they have any restrictions on their gift. Many say we are not to refund without their approval. If they say the recipient must purchase for themselves and not use it for someone else, we honor their wishes. — Dan Decker; Decker Diamond Jewelers, Ebensburg, PA

[componentheading]No, I Don’t[/componentheading]

That’s for big boxes — don’t want to be like them! — Paul Krueger; Krueger Jeweler, Fort Atkinson, WI

We tell all customers that they do not need the receipts to exchange, just the name of who purchased the item, and we can look it up in the system. — Ronnie Ware; Ware Jewelers, Bainbridge, GA

We get fewer than 0.1 percent returns, so we don’t address the issue. — Jonathan McCoy; McCoy Goldsmith & Jeweler, Dubuque, IA

Our standard 15-day return policy is discussed at purchase. This reduces “weekend” wearers and helps qualify purchases for better gift results! — Denise Oros; Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

I know my customers and my merchandise well enough that I can quickly look up the value of the item without having a receipt without the price on it. — Elizabeth Breon; Coast Jewelers, Florence, OR

We remove the quick-cash-for-thegiftee option. Credit or returns to the giver only. — Steven Wardle; Forest Beach Design, Chatham, MA

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
