THEY SAY YOU CAN’T judge a book by its cover. But Gene the Jeweler tries to do it anyway.

In the video below, the fictional Gene Kadlin explains that “profiling” is a key part of his store’s sales program. (As you may recall, he pretty much always uses the least effective approach possible for every area of his business.)

He explains: “That’s how we know what people can afford, what they’re looking for … it’s a better way for us to help them.”

What type of profiling does he do? He starts by looking closely at the clothes they’re wearing, and moves on to some questions about any criminal history they may have.

Don’t try this at home, folks. (Or at work. Or anywhere.)

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.
