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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
