True Tales: How One Guy Sized Bras

Published

Strange stories from the front lines

One morning a gentleman phoned to tell me he would like to replace a ring his wife lost. Ring size is usually perplexing to men, but not this gentleman: “Ring size, I even know her bra size!” He informed me his wife’s bra size is a 7X. I don’t know much about bra sizes, but I know enough to know that 7X is not a size. He proceeded to tell me about his previous year’s Christmas gift. He thought it would be nice to buy his wife a bra. Not knowing her size he went to his wife’s closet and began trying them on — his head. He determined his wife’s bra fit like his hat — a 7X. So off he went to Victoria’s Secret to get a bra. He tells me he put bras on his head until he found his correct size. While he is telling me this story my wife is pointing out this call is on our dime. After hanging up I shared the story with the store, and everyone agreed it was worth the dime!”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
