True Tales: The Truth Comes Out

Published

on

?A middle-aged couple with a young daughter, about 8, came into our store and asked for the manager. I asked them how I could help. The lady showed me a watch which she purchased at least six months before.The crystal was scratched and chipped, and the band looked very worn. She started to yell at me that we sold her this watch and it’s all chipped and scratched and looks terrible. I tried to explain to her that she purchased this watch in brand-new condition and added that she would never purchase from us a new watch with all those scratches and worn marks. As soon as I said that, her husband grabbed the watch from his wife’s hand and told me that I was calling his wife a liar, and didn’t believe her story. Just at that moment, the little girl pulled her mother’s skirt and said: ?Mommy, don’t you remember dropping this watch two days ago?’ When her father heard this, he swore and threw the watch against the marble floor, breaking it into a thousand pieces. The father grabbed his little girl by the hand and they rushed out of our store.?

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
