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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
