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. DENNIS PETIMEZAS, WATCHMAKER'S DIAMONDS & JEWELRY, JOHNSTOWN, PA

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.”
