True Tales: Bentley (the Dog) Acts Badly

Published

on

I always bring my Shih-Tzu, Bentley, to work with me. My clients love him. He is always so friendly and makes them feel welcome. Well, one day this couple brought their son, who looked to be about 6 years old, into the store. We are sitting there and I’m trying to sell them wedding bands and my darling dog Bentley hops up on their son’s leg and starts humping away! The little boy doesn’t know what he’s doing and just bursts into laughter. My face was bright red! The couple was trying to keep a straight face because I’m sure they didn’t want to get into a discussion of the birds and the bees. After a struggle, the mother managed to get Bentley off his leg and well, he just jumped up again and kept going at it. The fiancé finally said, “Well, we might as well let him finish.” They still bought the wedding bands from me.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
