True Tales: The Old Pest

Published

on

“One time a funny old man came into our store. He didn’t know where he was and he just wanted to rest. He sat on a chair in our showroom. Finally, after about an hour, I was tired of talking to him and had work to do. So I asked him where he was going and where he lived. He didn’t know! After much probing, I finally got a phone number out of him. He said it was his friend’s number and, if I asked, his friend would come and pick him up. I called and another very old man answered the phone. When I told him I had his friend in my shop and that he needed to be picked up, the old man on the other end of the line said: ‘Oh, you mean you have Wilbur there?’ Figuring this was the end of the saga, I said with relief: ‘Yes, I think so.’ Then the man answered: ‘I’m not picking Wilbur up, he’s a nuisance!‘ and hung up on me!

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
