The Sweet Taste of Vindication

Last summer, we had a customer come in to pick up a pearl necklace that she “swore” she left with us to repair. When we couldn’t find it in our repair box, she got really mad and threatened to call the Better Business Bureau on us. We were all stymied. None of our records showed that she had left that necklace with us. A few days later, she sent her husband in with a plate piled high with cookies to apologize. She had found the necklace in her jewelry box. She hadn’t brought it to us after all. Those cookies were very sweet indeed! — Chay Rees Runnels, Rees Jewelry, Nacogdoches, TX

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
