Sales Associate Never Should Have Asked Client’s Wife THAT!

LOYAL CUSTOMER, Mr. Cheatam, comes into store at Christmas to buy a large pair of diamond stud earrings. Sales associate Betty, who knows him and his wife well, sells him large diamond earrings. A week later, Mr. Cheatam’s wife comes into store for a repair. Betty asks Mrs. Cheatam how she liked the diamond earrings. Oops! Wrong thing to say. Moral of the story: Jewelers are like doctors. Privacy is the golden rule. (And yes, they did get a divorce.) — Greg R.; Prescott, AZ

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
