True Tales: The Lost Watch Battery

Published

on

Had a fellow come in one day and ask if I remembered him. I really didn’t so he continued on about the battery that I had installed in his watch. I suspected something had gone awry and I was in for a complaint. He stated that he had lost the watch only a week after I installed the battery. I expressed my sympathy for his loss and tried to figure out how this was going to be my problem. Then I asked what he thought I could do for him. He wanted to know if he could have a refund for the battery because it was of no use to him anymore. I was searching for the right words and the only thing that came out was, “No problem — bring in the battery and I’ll be happy to give you a refund.” To which he promptly replied, “But I lost that, too!”

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.”
