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.)

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
