True Tales: Definitely Not a $55 Ring

Published

on

A man walked in and wanted to buy a diamond bracelet. I showed him many — stating the prices as “twenty-five hundred, thirty-three hundred, and this one is fifty-five.? He said ?I’ll take that one.? He gave me his charge card and I rang in $5,500 plus tax. The card was declined. I asked him if maybe it was declined because he only had a $5,000 limit? He said: “Five thousand” I thought you said fifty-five!? I answered “Yes, I probably did, but I meant fifty-five hundred!” He said, “I guess I haven’t been in a jewelry store for a long time.” We both laughed, and he left shaking his head.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
