WHEN GENE THE JEWELER is choosing merchandise to carry in his store, has a rule: Never buy the same thing twice.

He makes this promise to his customers: “You’re never going to own something that someone else in town already owns. Everything is unique.”

But what if a particular item is selling like crazy?

“Well, we’d never know, because we only sell one of it,” the fictional character, a creation of marketing specialists Jimmy DeGroot, says in the video below.

In Gene’s mind, selling the same thing over and over again could lead to disaster. Perhaps if he were a better businessman, he’d realize that it would, in fact, lead to higher profits.

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.”
