MARGIE HAS WORKED for Gene the Jeweler’s store forever — or at least since the ’60s.

She worked for Gene’s parents when they owned the business. In fact she was their first hire.

And today, she’s the store’s best salesperson, despite some problems with personal hygiene and choice of attire. And the fact that she doesn’t get along with other staff members at all.

Gene, the star of the parody series by marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot, describes Margie as “quirky.” A better word might be toxic.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
