 WHY IT’S TRUE 
Selling used to be about transactions; now it’s about relationships. People come to your store for jewelry, but they come back only if you care. The information that you have in your database about their occupation, family, and hobbies, and their jewelry wish list, will take you a long way in developing and maintaining a strong relationship. 
 
PLAN OF ACTION 
How many customers do you have in your database, and what do you really know about them? Conduct this exercise with your sales staff. On a sheet of paper, ask people to write the names of your top 50 customers. Then ask them to write something they know about that customer — spouse, hobbies, etc. You will be amazed at how little your people, and perhaps you, really know about the customers who come into your store.

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.”
