INSTORE angrycustomerYou’ve certainly heard the cliche that the customer is always right.

And if you’ve worked in retail for more than, say, 30 minutes, you know it just isn’t true.

Sure, in most cases it’s best to proceed as if it were. But that can be hard to remember when you’re being berated by someone who’s clearly wrong, wrong, wrong.

In that spirit, we present this short list of things you could tell yourself, as a customer rants at you, if the mantra “The customer is always right” is no longer working:

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
