THIS MONTH’S EPISODE of Over the Counter is about taking responsibility for one’s mistakes and, as host Kyle Bullock puts it, “going above and beyond … even when it comes at a great personal cost.”

Says Bullock, “This is exactly the kind of story that I love to share on this show.”

It’s the story of one of the toughest, and yet most rewarding times, in the career of Bill Brundage of Bill Brundage Jewelers in Louisville, KY.

Brundage is a veteran jeweler who stopped advertising in 1993 and, since then, has relied entirely on the power of word of mouth. “And we’ve done very well that way,” he says. So when one of his bench staff vaporized a customer’s prize family heirloom — a five-carat, natural, non-heat-treated sapphire — Bill knew right away what he was going to have to do.

Learn how it all turned out in the latest episode of Over the Counter.

Kyle Bullock is a fourth-generation jeweler who manages Bullock's Jewelry in Roswell, NM. He is also a best selling author, speaker and performer, and small business coach. To contact him, email him at [email protected].

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.
