WHY IT IS TRUE: The jewelry industry is a place of many remarkable rewards, but also lost sales. Don’t take it personally; just move on.

PLAN OF ACTION: All of us have gone into a store to purchase a blouse, suit, a pair of slacks, etc. and at the moment of commitment, made the decision (for whatever reason) not to buy. Now, were you rejecting the merchandise, or were you rejecting the salesperson? If your customer is clearly not going to buy, forget the time you invested in the sale, give them your card, and invite them to come back for other needs they may have.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
