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

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
