True Tales: Fastest Wedding Ring Sale Ever

Published

on

A couple comes in the store and I ask, “Are we looking for something special today?” The lady says yes, she is looking at wedding rings. She points to a set in the case, and I put it on her finger. She tears off the tags, hands them to the man and says: “He'll pay for it.” Then she walks out of the store.  
 
I totaled up the rings, told him it would be $895, and he pulled out the cash, paid and left without ever saying a word. This took a total of maybe three minutes from when they walked into the store. We have never seen them again and we have always wondered what he did to have to buy her that ring. Quickest sale I ever made. — KENT E.,, SHAWNEE, OK

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
