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

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
