True Tales: One Last Christmas Gift

Published

on

About eight years ago in March, one of my customers came into my store with the physical assistance of a friend. I had known for some time Ricky had been fighting a brain tumor and that his outlook wasn’t good. Ricky asked to see our selection of gold crosses. He picked out a plain small cross with gold chain and asked that I order three of them and engrave “Love Ricky, Christmas 1996” on each. He told us to gift-wrap them in Christmas paper and hold them in the store. Ricky said, “If I’m still alive at Christmas, I’ll pick them up. If not, please deliver these to my wife on Christmas Eve.” One was for his wife and the others for his teenage daughters. Unfortunately, Ricky didn’t make it to Christmas, and I delivered the crosses when promised. I cannot begin to describe the emotion his wife and daughters had when they found out that Ricky had thought so far ahead that he gave them one final Christmas present. It was the highlight of their Christmas, as it was for every member of my staff. We have chosen a profession that can bring a lot of joy. That’s what really matters.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
