Arundale wonders why some jewelers are so slow at moving away from traditional sales habits. “This is insanity to me,” Aleah rants. “We’re making our customers feel embarrassed, we’re making them feel uncomfortable. Guys are already uncomfortable going into a jewelry store! You want to empower them. Even if you put a price range, I get it … you don’t want to just smack a sticker on it. But first of all, Tiffany’s is doing this, by the way … And if they can do it, you certainly can find a classy way to do it.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
