Linetime: I’m Not Sure About That …

“I’m not sure about that,
but I think we can do this.”

WHEN TO SAY IT: For example, you have a customer who wants to return a piece she’s obviously been wearing for several months. Rather than giving in to her demand, offer her something that is doable and fair, perhaps an offer to trade it in or to consign it for her. This allows you to be comfortable with your store’s position, while the customer will (should) warm to the idea. Just because something isn’t a person’s first option doesn’t mean it’s a bad one.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
