 Tale End: With Certainty

 

[dropcap cap=One busy December day,] a woman came in with a very old box from our store and said she would like to exchange a necklace she had been given. Upon seeing the necklace I knew it was something we’d sold at least 15 and maybe closer to 20 years before. I tactfully explained our return and exchange policy — which is pretty liberal — but made it clear that I was aware of how long ago the piece had been purchased. To the shock of all who were eavesdropping, she said, “Oh, I received it for Christmas 17 years ago and I have never been sure that it is really me, but I wanted to be sure I didn’t like it before bringing it back.” [/dropcap]

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
