This Customer Asked to Use the Restroom, Then Cleaned It

I was helping a customer on a Saturday and she had brought her husband along to pick up her new wedding band. While they were checking out, her husband asked if he could use our restroom. I don’t typically let “the public” use our restroom, but they were nice and spending some money on an expensive band, so I said sure. I hear him wrestling around in there and he is in there for almost 20 minutes. By the time he came out, I had already rung her up and we were just shooting the breeze waiting for him. They said thank you and left, so I went in to check the damage. Turns out the guy found the Clorox wipes, cleaned the facility first then got himself his own new toilet paper roll, made himself at home and did his business. I have never seen this in our store before and didn’t know what to think. At first, I thought, “Who does this?” But then I couldn’t help but laugh that he made himself at home. At least he was clean! — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, 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.
