True Tales: The Sinking of the Cleavage

Published

on

One of our salespeople came to my wife Linda saying she needed help with a client. She simply could not convince the client that her pearl necklace, which we had just restrung, was the same length it used to be. She was a nicely dressed, attractive, middle-aged woman. She was not being unpleasant, but she was absolutely sure something was wrong. My wife quickly learned that the client was sure her pearls were shorter because she remembered distinctly that when she first got the pearls, they came to the top of her cleavage. Linda thought for a moment and asked, “And how long ago was that?” The woman thought for a second, and then said “Oh, my God, you’re right!” And they both had a good laugh.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
