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.

Once again, the problems in Gene’s fictional jewelry store reflect poorly on his management practices. Since Margie presumably generate much of the store’s revenue, you have to wonder what will happen when she inevitably decides to retire — especially since Gene doesn’t train his staff.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
