We once had a gentleman in our store who
was visiting from Texas. He was saying to us (and
other customers in the store) how things were so
much grander in Texas. He claimed that back home
if he drove his car at 9.00 in the morning, it took
him almost to 1.00 in the afternoon before he got to
the end of his expansive property. Another gentlemen
who was here at the time looked at him and
said. “Well my property is about 100 yards in either
direction and you know what? I had a car like that
once!” – Alex Weil, Martin’s Jewelry, Manhattan

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
