Are you getting the service you deserve?

HEY, IT AIN’T EASY BEING YOU. And we’re always on the lookout for ways to make your life easier. 

This month’s lead story, ?A Helping Hand?, is a good example of that. In it, we look around the industry to find vendors and suppliers who are doing business the right way ? seeing themselves as true partners in their retail customers’ businesses and always seeking innovative ways to help them sell. The stories presented in this feature prove that the supplier who truly wants your business to succeed is a very valuable ally.  

For the last several years, we’ve been preaching to you about how to ?wow!? your customers (with the help of books with titles like Hug Your Customers, Raving Fans, Knock-Your-Socks-Off-Service, and more). Now the roles are reversed ? you’re the customer, and it’s time to make sure you’re getting the treatment you deserve. (Hopefully, your suppliers have been reading some of these same books!)  

For any manufacturers auditing Instore and looking to serve your customers better, this article is a great place to start. Remember, the same way jewelers will make more sales, and earn longer-term loyalty, by wow!-ing customers, you’ll do better ? not to mention, have more fun doing it ? by taking the same approach. Enjoy the mag! 

Wishing you the very best business …

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
