Strange stories from the front lines

?One day, a good customer came in and wanted to talk to us about doing a custom design. She and I sat down at the design table across from each other and began to discuss details. Throughout the course of the conversation, she tells me (and by now my husband, who has squatted down beside the table) that she recently had some tattoos done. OK. Nothing scary about this so far …. She slightly pulls back the edge of her collar to show us this tiny little star. As she had had radiation treatment for cancer, she decided to have stars put where the scars were. Next thing I know, she’s lifted up her shirt to expose large breasts (with many stars). It was comical as they were right in my husband’s face when she did that! Talk about a deer-in-the-headlights look! Not bad enough? In walks a customer at that moment. ?Hey! I’ve got a pair of those!’ she says.?

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
