Tale End: Inflation

SOME TIME AGO, we did a battery and water-seal on a customer’s watch. I don’t recall the particulars, but something happened to displease her, so we refunded her money and sent her a letter of apology offering her 15 percent off her next purchase from our store. Sure enough, she came in recently looking to purchase a watch. When she finally made her selection, she reminded us of our letter and claimed that it offered her 20 percent off. Good thing I was able to produce a copy of the letter, 12 years later, to show her that she was entitled to 15 percent off! With customers like that, coming in once every 12 years, we’d all be out of business! — GINA WALLACH, WALLACH JEWELRY DESIGNS, LARCHMONT, NY

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.
