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 …

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
