True Tales: See What This Salesperson Did When the Store’s Owner Went on Vacation

We had two very high-priced estate diamond rings at one time — more expensive than anything else in the shop by leaps. We were out of town that week, and as we were waiting at the airport to leave, our salesperson, Emily, called to tell us very excitedly that she had just sold one of them. She joked that she would sell the next one the next day. A half hour later, she called to say she had sold the second one to a different couple! We had a really good trip! — Carol Drake, Touch of Silver, Gold & Old, Nashville, IN

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
