True Tales: Short-Lived Happiness

Published

on

Stories from the front lines of retail 

A nice, enthusiastic guy calls several times, making sure we would be ready for him to bring in his girlfriend for an engagement ring. He says, “Money is no object. I have a great job and it is full time.”
At noon, he comes in the door with a very surprised, scared, nervous girlfriend. We help her make three choices for an engagement ring. She has tears in her eyes. We’ve been chatting back and forth and I ask how long have they been together. “One month” was the answer. They left with him saying he’d be back to finalize the deal. He never did return. A month later he came in and asked if we were hiring. I had to tell him no. He hung his head and left. I felt sorry for him and wondered about his girlfriend. From the happiest guy in the world to the most sad in just 30 days.

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.
