Even A Pandemic Couldn’t Change These Customers

One tried to lick her finger to take off her ring, with even more gross results than usual.

Had a customer the other day who went to lick her finger to get a ring off, only to end up spitting in her mask. Lucky for me, my mask hid my smirk. I was kind enough to give her a fresh mask, though I refused to take the spittle-coated one she tried to hand me. I just held up the waste basket for her. — James Doggett, Doggett Jewelry, Kingston, NH

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.
