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

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
