True Tales: How One Guy Sized Bras

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!”

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
