Humor: This Customer Wanted to Know Where He Could Find a Better Ring

The jeweler was at a loss for words.





“I had repaired (for the third time) a really poor-quality engagement ring for a young man (he had purchased it at Walmart), and I advised him that he should consider a better made ring for longevity. He agreed and asked if I could recommend a good place to get one. We were standing in front of my bridal section at the time. I looked at my showcases and back at him and replied, ‘No.’ He thanked me and left. I’m not sure why I feel like I dodged a bullet on that one.” — Rick Sanders, Sanders Jewelers, Gainesville, FL

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.”
