True Tales

This Customer Paid In Cookies

The owner didn’t want payment, but got a sweet surprise anyway.




cookies and clock

“There are times when a clock owner will call me on the telephone and tell me their clock has stopped. After asking a series of questions, many times the owner is able to take care of the problem themselves. One person, after the completion of the over-the-phone repair, asked what they needed to pay me. I told them nothing since they solved the problem themselves. They insisted, so I told them they could send me a dozen oatmeal cookies. It was a year before I collected.” — Glyn Jolly, G.J. Enterprise, Victoria, TX



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
