True Tales: A Beyond-Lifetime Battery Warranty

Published

on

We offer a lifetime replacement battery on watches. You pay once and the battery is replaced for a lifetime. Sadly, one of our customers who had purchased one of our lifetime batteries passed away. The heirs came back to us after the funeral, with the receipt, and asked for a refund on the battery as the "lifetime had ended." To be sure, they didn't have the battery; it was buried with the deceased, along with his favorite watch. We went ahead and refunded the money, and had a good laugh – J.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
