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

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
