True Tales: Another Refund That Wasn’t Granted

Published

on

A young couple picks out a trio set to put on layaway. He pays enough to take the engagement ring with him and gives it to her. Six months later (no other payments on the layaway) he wants his money back. I remind him that he has the ring and ask why he expects his downpayment back. He tells me I’m wrong. He doesn’t have the ring — she does! I thought it was good for a grin, but not a refund.

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.”
