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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
