True Tales: Ring Removal While You Wait

Published

on

I’m ready to submit my entry for the annual Christmas shopper Darwin award. I had a call yesterday went like this … no joke!

“Hello, Jewelry Works? Uhh, are you the owner?”

“Yes, Ma’am, how can I help you?”

“Well, my finger is swollen and I need get my ring cut off. Do you do that?”

“Yes, Ma’am and it usually only takes a few minutes.”

“Uhh, ok. Can you do it while I wait?”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
