There’s a surefire way to make your jewelry store memorable — the kind of place customers want to visit again and again, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot.

The key, he says, is to set “store absolutes.”

“You may have heard them called non-negotiables  or standards, but they are the actions, words and attitudes we do every time with every customer,” DeGroot says in the video below.

He adds: “What creating and enforcing store absolutes does for you is provide a consistently awesome experience for every customer.  And when they have a great experience, they tell people about it … and they keep coming back.”

Don’t set the absolutes yourself, DeGroot says. Formulate them with your team — you need their buy-in.

Your absolutes can cover customer service, such as how you greet customers, as well as sales and other areas.

“They’ll make management happier and sales staff happier and definitely be delightful and memorable to customers,” DeGroot says.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
