Zen Jeweler: On The Folly of Being Rational

Do gamblers gamble to lose? They don’t think so. But the odds are against them winning. 

Do jewelers gamble on the belief that their customers are making rational decisions? Yes, we do. We expect them to hear what we say and make cold, sensible, rational choices. Concerning the most emotional purchase on the planet. 

It’s time to bring emotion, pure emotion, to the sales floor. Stop expecting sense, and expect senses. Stop talking about deadlines and talk about eternity. Stop telling them about your finance options and tell them about the time you surprised your own loved one with a great gift. Is your store missing the fire it once had? Well, weren’t you once the spark? Go get ’em, Sparky!

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.
