We had one customer who sent us this message, wanting an update on her engagement ring: “I promised myself I wouldn’t bother you about my ring’s progress, but I also promised myself to lose weight and stop swearing. Since I just ate almost a whole f#@&ing pecan pie, I figured I’d blow all my resolutions and ask how my beautiful ring is coming along? Hope to hear from you soon, but in the meantime, I hear a chocolate cake calling my name. Sh!t.”
We have another funny customer who would always sign her messages with the following: “Hugs and ass slaps, A.” — Jen Hollywood, J Hollywood Designs, Chester Springs, PA

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.
