Humor: That Time The Client’s Hysterectomy Failed

She didn’t need jewelry; she needed diapers.

“After 35 years of hearing various excuses and stories when customers return or pawn, a month or so ago, a customer came in to pawn her newly purchased anniversary gift. She was all apologetic because she needed the money for meds. Her total hysterectomy failed, and she just found out she was pregnant. I was speechless.” — Trisha Corleto, Lowell Jewelry and Loan, Lowell, MA

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
