WHY IT’S TRUE People walk through the door of your store shopping for a gift for someone or something for themselves. They choose your store rather than the one down the street because of their perception of your image and the great value you offer. Price: certainly it’s important, but not the primary reason they just walked through the door. Many customers believe that in today’s marketplace, they can certainly get you to give them a “better price.”

PLAN OF ACTION Considering a $3,000 anniversary gift, the customer says, “What’s your best price?” Mentally pondering his question for a moment, you say, “My best price is $3,500.” The customer will probably say, “Wait a minute, $3,500! I asked for your best price.” You respond by saying, “$3,500 is my best price … $3,000 is my great price!” You’ve just enhanced the value of the purchase and probably closed the sale.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
