True Tales: Iraq and a Hard Place

Published in the November 2013 issue

OOne of our most colorful and biggerthan- life customers had called for a lastminute rush order of a special pair of diamond earrings for his first anniversary. (The engagement ring had been bought here and sealed with shots of Crown Royal, which he had given me as a gift). I could hardly hear him with what sounded like a heck of a party or an early 4th of July celebration going on. More static, interference, yelling and repeating and finally advice on how I, in fact, would make the presentation to his wife.

He was in a war zone in Iraq, and the background noise was artillery shelling.

He’s safely back now … a patriot, and to this day he is called “Iraq Jack.” — J. Dennis Petimezas, Watchmakers Diamonds & Jewelry, Johnstown, PA

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.
