WHY IT IS TRUE: A man walks into the store and exclaims, “I’m looking for an engagement ring.” Your quick response is something like, “What did you have in mind?” This statement will cause the customer to focus on the financial investment instead of the meaning behind the purchase.

PLAN OF ACTION: Instead ask, “How do you plan to propose?” Remind him that this is one of the most important days in her life and share some successful proposal stories. Now he is no longer focused on the investment but rather the meaning behind the event.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
